Skyway Chevron Food Mart & Deli

You’ve got the obvious — beer and smokes. What guy doesn’t like a sixer of his favorite brew? And cigs are, like, $30 a carton or something, so it’s not like they’re a cheap gift. Slap a bow on top and you’re good to go. Then there’s the less obvious stuff: lighters in the shape of naked chicks; Napoleon Dynamite T-shirts; marijuana-leaf ashtrays; flip-flops; the occasional potted bamboo plant. And no matter what the gifting occasion, you can, quite literally, put off “shopping” until the last minute; you’ll pass 10 Chevrons on the way to the party. Skyway Chevron, known to some regulars as “the packie,” is a particular favorite. 6191 Ninth St. S., St. Petersburg, 727-864-4048.
