Sad news

After nearly 60 years in business, Shop-N-Go, 12245 S. Virginia St., has closed its doors.

The convience store was known for also offering freshly made food like baked goods and pizza, as well as local craft beer.

The Linscott family, which has owned the business since it opened in 1962, announced the decision to shut down shop Facebook.

“We owe it to you, our customers, to announce that after doing business at this location for 57 years we have decided to downsize, to simplify our lives, to spend more time with our grandchild, and family,” the message said.

The other Shop-N-Go location, 641 E. Moana Lane, will remain open.
