These locations may sell a variety of goods, such as snack foods, prepackaged sandwiches, coffee, tea, canned or bottled beverages, dairy products, cigarettes, bread, breakfast cereals, processed packaged food items, canned foods, flour, sugar, condiments, soaps and toiletries, charcoal, pet food, magazine, and sundries.
