    I think you vastly underestimate my definition of Giant.

    Pay first policy for a convenience store How would that work?
    Be Japanese. 100% vending machines
    One person watching from cam would be enough to catch someone "stealing a vending machine"...

    ^^The fucked up part is thats probably the country with the least amount of theft worldwide. They probably went vending for convenience where as here we'd be doing so for security. No way in hell you could do that with a 7/11 though unless you do a giant one like killramos has envisioned

    Just turn 7/11 into a giant vending machine. Problem solved.
    There's a reason certain alberta liquor vendors in certain geographic locations are starting to look like a LCBO. Menu, Till, Conveyor belt... Order, pay, liquor appears at cashier.

    Isn’t Eden Valley mostly a First Nations area/community as well?

    Pho costs what, ten bucks? Let's say ten bucks, that would work out to 1,000 pho or 33 dine and dashes a day. Just doesn't seem realistic.

    Any one of these frequently hit places just needs to close the doors and become a stand/kiosk.

    Still profits to be made.

    From what I saw of the short lived posts, the owner followed what had been working for some other very small town liquor stores where the grab and run had been becoming popular.

    Im such a moron lol I just re read my initial post about the 7/11 shutting down and it totally sounds like i was saying the pho place was losing out on $10k a month. What i meant was the 7/11 was losing out on $10k a month, i talked to the owners son at the pho place and hes the one that told me 7/11 closed because they were losing $10k a month. My bad. 33 dine and dashes a day would be fuckin crazy lol
