In 2011, Lindsay, who was only 23 years old at the time, bought the convenience store that was across the road from its current location. She worked non-stop to update and expand the business, while also fostering a sense of community. When her first daughter, Jayda, was born, Lindsay put a playpen right in the store. Local women would drop in to hold and help take care of Jayda.
Eight years later, Lindsay took yet another big leap and moved the store across the road. She renovated the building, added gas pumps and liquor, and hired more staff. The new store opened in 2018.
