Convenience stores like Kwik Trip find themselves in a unique position during the COVID-19 outbreak as locations that offer not only fuel, but ready-to-eat food, groceries, and other necessities. During the outbreak, Kwik Trip has shared that they continue to remain open to serve the community in all of these capacities, while still following the guidance of health officials to protect both their employees and customers.
