Sooper Stop popular Sheyenne Street convenience store

Over four years and going strong, Todd and Denise Jacobson continue their commitment to high quality, customer service at Sooper Stop, their hands-on, locally owned neighborhood convenience store situated on the corner of Sheyenne Street and 7th Avenue in West Fargo.

Stop in anytime and you'll see the same familiar faces picking up that freshly brewed cup of hot coffee, filling up with gas, or checking out the ever-growing food line-up available daily in the popular 'deli' area.

In order to better serve the ever-increasing customer base, plans are in the works for a total remodel of the store, which the Jacobson's are hoping to accomplish next spring. "We want to get rid of the box look and come up with a building that is a little more architecturally appealing," Todd said.

He is quick to point out that just about everything about the inventory will remain the same, with the exception of ongoing additions that only serve to enhance what is already being offered in the store. "We'll continue to offer the same well-rounded, full-service inventory we presently have available for our customers."

Todd happily noted that the food service portion of their business has been on a steadily growing incline. "Our specialty broasted fried chicken has become extremely popular and a force on its own, but the entire food portion of our business is growing." On that note, the Sooper Stop promotes daily food specials in a number of ways - in house, in coupon form in local newspapers, and on the highly visible billboard outside their business.

The Sooper Stop has also been able to thrive as a lottery sales location and presently holds the distinction of being the largest volume lottery dealer in the West Fargo-Fargo area, and overall the fourth largest in the state.

Specific plans for these varying endeavors will be announced as soon as they are firmed up. In the meantime, customers can continue to enjoy the full-service convenience store offerings that include a variety of breakfast items; daily noon luncheon specials, as well as lunch and supper offerings that feature their famous broasted chicken, toasted subs, homemade pizza; a wide selection of side items, including appetizers, potato, macaroni salad and coleslaw; a vast selection of regular grocery items; a coffee fountain and full self-serve ice cream shop; and obviously, gasoline and other related items as well as cigarettes.

Sooper Stop employees include Corey Krauth, deli clerk; Dave Chezick, Erin Heglie, Kaylee Anderson, Ronda Baumiller, and their son, Matt Wurden, all sales clerks.

Hours at Sooper Stop are 5 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday through Saturday; and 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday.
