Stone Drug is an enigma in the modern retail landscape. It has thrived for more than 50 years by exploring cutting-edge technological innovations while keeping one foot firmly rooted in the past. Its pharmacy is as high-tech as they come, but its old-fashioned soda fountain and time-tested customer service are a welcome blast from the past.

Most convenience retailers support the need for a minimum wage but were mixed about the need for an increase to it.
CSP Magazine
In a recent CSP poll of more than 200 convenience-store retailers, nearly 60% opposed raising the federal minimum wage. For those who supported an increase, most—42%—favored an increase to no more than $9 an hour, below the Obama administration’s proposal of a $10.10 wage. And nearly 40% believed there should be no federal minimum wage at all.
