Why is her gas always the most expensive? Not to mention everything in the store is way over priced.

Well that couldn't be true, seeing how I refuse to buy anything there.

What's up with the big house they are building?

1st of all the house that is being built is being built by Wandas son Shannon and his wife, Dr. Pennington. Dr. Pennington is one the the nicest people that you would ever met.Shannon is the same good ol' country boy Shannon he has always been. Shannon has a college degree and is an engineer, I believe. Their building the "big house" has nothing to do with Wanda. Shannon & his wife have worked very hard for everything they have. They have earned the money & made wise choices to be able to build their new house. Thats what has took them so long to build it, and they still aren't done. They have been married for many years & have lived in the little old house at the bottom of the hill.

If you do not like Wanda, thats your choice. But, the house is not hers. I live near Kingston and I am very thankful for the dollar store across the street from Wandas Shellmart, yes she owns it too. They have fair prices & the girls that work there are nice. Yes, it kills me to pay double for a pack of shreaded cheese or something like that but its cheaper than driving to Richmond or Berea to get it. I haven't been in Shellmart for a long time but I do like the little dollar store. As far as the gas prices, they seem to be the same as every other gas station, which sucks. If you have a Kroger card you can save 10 cents on the gallon at any Shellmart on a gallon of gas.

The prices are higher at any gas station, because they do not buy in bulk like the larger stores such as kroger or walmart. they pay higher prices for items and then so do you. the gas prices are about the same there as other stations. I agree its cheaper than driving to richmond.

Your both wrong, her gas prices are ALWAYS 2-4 cents more than anywhere else in Richmond / Berea. She's a greedy old woman. Period. She's never done anything personally to me, I'm just an outsider looking in. It's obvious.

.02-.04 cents on gallon is only .10-.20 cents more when I fill up my 5 gallon tank to mow my yard. I am not arguing. It's just that I live near Kingston and to spend .10 to .20 cents more for 5 gallons of gas is a whole lot cheaper than driving to Richmond or Berea, or the closest BP, to get gas to mow my yard. I would burn more than .10 or .20 in my truck going to fill up my 5-gallon can and back home.

I use my KROGER plus card and save .10 on every gallon I buy at Wandas, so even if she is .02-.04 cents higher....I am still paying .06-.08 cents cheaper than you are paying in town. Everyone wins. I get my gas cheaper and she gets the business to keep our little store a running. I haven't been inside Shellmart in a long time, I pay at the pump.

I don't have a problem with the gas prices. As someone mentioned earlier you are only looking at a dollar more per fill up on 25 gallons, and use the Kroger card and get the 10 cent per gallon discount.

I stop in there quite often for coffee and the sausage biscuits etc... the employees there have never been anything but nice to me.

People that own and run their own business have to stay in business, and the only way to do that is through profits.

It would be nice if we all could sell at Wal-Mart prices but unfortunately I, as well as many other small business owners, do not have that type of buying power.

Everyone is money hungry anymore and this love for money will most likely send them straight to HELL. Remember what the Bible reads about it----- easier for the rich to go thru the eye of a needle than to enter the kingdom of Heaven or something to that effect, just read it for yourself because I sure don't want to be mis-leading. Now, how can anyone go thru the eye of a needle? We can't!

I could not agree more. Wanda is a darn nice person and does a lot for the community and the county.

No I am not any kin to her or any of the Pennington family! I have however worked for her and she has been one hundred percent positive and straight in our dealings. We need more women business people like her.
