the circle of life for retail

From the 1950's through the 1980's the Circle K chain built stores on nearly every corner in every neighborhood throughout the southwest. Then reality set in, and the chain filed Chapter 11, and most of those stores went empty.

Paho Mann documents what's happened to the stores since that time. Many have been taken over by entrepreneurs, small business owners and some have been destroyed.

Paho has assembled a wonderful collection of photos, a Google maps website, and a book that serves as an interesting study on the life of business, suburbia and our culture as a whole.
