Shopping just got quicker and easier on Longboat Key.
Quik-n-Easy opened for business yesterday at 4032 Gulf of Mexico Drive at the site of the former Longboat 7-Eleven. The convenience store is owned by Longboat Ace Hardware and Holmes Beach Ace Hardware owner Reed Savidge and his wife, Ginny.
The store currently offers basic convenience store offerings such as beer, tobacco, coffee, fountain drinks and small grocery items and will expand its grocery offerings during the eight-month period later this year in which Longboat Key’s Publix will be closed.
Hours are 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.
