At the corner of Long Road and Edison Avenue in Chesterfield Valley, there's a gas station with all the bells and whistles. Not only is there an attached drive-thru bakery from McArthur's, but there's a full service car wash facility that wraps around the back.
Operations Manager Mace Nosovitch, said, "The best description of this place would be a standard convenience store but on steroids."
Customers are amazed by the sheer size of the convenience store, Edison Express.
"Everyone walks in and stops in their tracks," he said.
You'll find everything from a walk in beer cave to Shakespeare's Pizza.
Mace said, "I'm a Mizzou Grad, I was there for my undergraduate years, and I think anyone whose been to Mizzou loves Shakespeare's Pizza. So, being here in St. Louis, I missed it. So, I approached the owners in Columbia and talked about adding it to our selection for our customers... and serve it by the slice or whole pizzas. People can get carryout take it home."
