那是1977年, and Dana and Becky Lawrentz were chatting with friends over brews in their hometown of Akron, 俄亥俄州. They got to talking about a gas station convenience store in the area that had built a makeshift drive-through. Everyone agreed it would be pretty great if you could actually drive through a convenience store and pick up everything you needed without getting out of the car. 但你会怎么称呼那样的地方呢?
这是一个他们无法动摇的想法, so the Lawrentzes moved to the Outer Banks and built the first 煮透 with the help of a partner. The idea was that people could come buy everything they would need for their trip to the beach—beer, 酒, 软饮料, 零食, 没有下车的冰. 同年, a t-shirt salesman visiting the store and talked them into adding t-shirts to their product line—and 44 years later there are now more than five million 煮透 t-shirts out in the wild.
The Lawrentzes’ daughter Brandy and her husband Philip Foreman purchased the business from them in 2002, and they now operate five locations across the Outer Banks.“We love being the one-stop shop for folks on the way to their beach house,” Foreman says. “Our car tenders are the friendliest people at the beach. 十大网赌正规平台是来迎接你的, 给你准备旅行所需的一切, 帮你把它装进后备箱, 让你带着微笑离开.”
这家商店价格相当昂贵, 拥有100多个品牌的啤酒, dozens of 酒s and even a vast selection of cigars—not to mention all the 零食, t恤和其他装备. 让点餐更容易些, customers in line get a menu—fondly known as the Summer-y—that outlines everything available at the store. These Summer-ies are also available in many of the beach rentals, which allows vacationers to decide what they want before driving through.
For customers who would like to get out and stretch their legs, 在杀魔山有一家咖啡店, where you can find their world famous t-shirts and other gifts. 每年都有新的t恤设计问世, making a yearly 煮透 t-shirt a favorite of locals and annual visitors to the Outer Banks.
福尔曼一家都是在外滩群岛长大的, and they love that Brandy’s parents’ vision for a friendly and convenient place for people to grab their brews and other beach stay essentials is continuing to flourish.
“Our family has been welcoming people to the Outer Banks since 1977,” Foreman says. “We love this beautiful place, and we want everybody to get to enjoy it.”
