1. Groceries On The Go!
Summers are a busy time. Between work, enjoying the warm weather, and entertaining the kids, it can be difficult to get everything done in a day. Did you know Viola Groceries and Leon Groceries can provide you with a one-stop shop for gas, groceries, and more? The convenience stores offer shoppers a quick and easy stop for a variety of everyday needs -- fuel, general grocery items, a selection of ready-to-eat foods ranging from fried gizzards and corn dogs to freshly-made breakfast sandwiches. They carry Stroot Locker meats and Hunt Brothers Pizza is available for dine-in or carry-out. You may also purchase your hunting tags and licenses at either location, along with Kansas lottery tickets, beer, and ice. Customers enjoy free, wireless Internet while dining or shopping.
The Viola and Leon Groceries are family-owned and operated by Sachin Malla and Supreme Shrestha and branded by Cenex. Sachin and Supreme began working in the food industry while in college at Wichita State University. They were looking for careers that would keep them on their toes and thought convenience stores would provide just that. Both admit it took a lot of hard work, dedication, and long hours to learn the trade and get on their feet. With the tremendous help and support they received from the communities, Sachin and Supreme have been able to grow their business over the past three years and become prominent fixtures in the community.
Stop by either location today to fill up on gas, pick up dinner, or get your groceries on the go!

2. SKT -- Ever Building New Lines of Communication
Trying to get the word out for your church group? Attract buyers to your HUGE garage sale? Find good homes for kittens? Sell your home? SKT can help in a couple of ways!
The first method you can do yourself for FREE – as long as you have access to the Internet … and that would be posting your information on SKT’s Website, www.SKTMainstreet.com. Go there, and you’ll see four blue bars: “Post your News,” “Post Your Events,” “Post your Classifieds,” and “Post your Photos.” Simply click on the one that will serve your purpose best and follow the prompts. SKT’s Website, www.SKTMainstreet.com, has well over 100,000 page views per month, with users spending an average of nearly five minutes on the site, which is excellent, considering the average time is two minutes. Our bounce rate is excellent too (29.7% compared to the average of 75% quickly leaving a website page)! While you’re there, you might find a great deal on an appliance or take a moment to enjoy the beautiful photos submitted by customers for our biennial photo contests.
The second way to get the word out is to have us post it on SKT’s Cable Channel 2! The cost is just $7.50 per week or $25.00 per month for residential ads. On Channel 2, each page displays for 15 seconds, with the ads rotating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year! Simply call us at 888.758.8976 or e-mail your information to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll do our best to create an ad just for you, completely customized with your colors, photos, or graphics. We’ll be happy to e-mail you a proof before broadcasting, and if you have an SKT account, we’ll simply add the charge to your next billing. Also, where applicable, we also post your events, items for sale, job openings, etc., on our Website at no extra charge.
And finally, we’ve been having fun and building new lines of communication on our SKT Facebook page. We have Music Mondays, Trivia Tuesdays, Wacky Wednesdays, Thursday Thoughts, and Friday Fun going on each week. And, at least once per week, we award customers $10 off their SKT billing and give away prizes. This summer we’ll also be offering free tickets to local events, gift certificates to local businesses, and letting you know about fun events you might want to take in on the weekends. Quite simply, we would love for you to “Like” us on Facebook.
SKT is more than telephones … we offer great solutions for getting the word out, utilizing all sorts of lines of communication! Check them out.
