Our History

Lowell and Fern Renken purchased the Phil Mart location in 1968.  At the time, it was a full-service Phillips 66 gas station with 2 service bays.  They leased it out to several different people over the years.  In 1983, they decided to run it themselves and convert it into a convenience store.  Hot Stuff Pizzas, Subs and J & L Bottles were added on in 1997. Lowell passed away in 2007.  Fern continues to own and operate the store with the help of her daughter and son-in-law (Jeff and Lori LaFrance) Grandkids Jada, Seth, and Corina LaFrance also work at Phil Mart.  Fern has always believed in giving young people a chance.

Therfore, hundreds of young people in our area got their start working at Phil Mart.  Fern says that she couldn't have done it without all of her wonderful employees throughout the years.
