Stock groceries, run the cashier, and enjoy pretend play in a realistic store!

In the Royal Farms Convenience Store & Fill’er Up Station, children have a chance to pretend to be a cashier, a shopper, a stocker, and more! As children play, they learn how to take turns, to work together, and they have chances to explore and learn about food groups plus take turns filling up the VW Beetle with gas and air!
