Hunting & Gathering: Convenience store

  • The Gas-Up continues to serve as the taupe hub of the “east-West Asheville” Ferris wheel. The Haywood Road outlet is a general store for these times offering biodiesel local beer a Sweepstakes casino and a countertop cupboard displaying sunglasses feather barrettes glass and corncob pipes and a gas mask. If the TV show Cheers took place in the South and in a bodega and was called Thank You Come Again Gas-Up would be the inspiration. — J.B.
