Presto Convenience Store in Gardner is under new ownership. The store, part of a chain, is one of five in the Kansas City area purchased by North Carolina-based The Pantry. Details of the cash deal were not disclosed.
The local convenience store, located at the intersection of Moonlight Road and Santa Fe Street, lost its gas storage tanks through eminent domain when the city demolished the intersection and built a cul-de-sac at the Santa Fe in its place.
Although the gas pumps were never replaced, the store remains open.
