Convenience store gets new name
September 25, 2001
The Austin Peay convenience store has a new name: The Peay Pod. As a part of the grand re-opening, students were asked to submit possible names for the store. "The Peay Pod" was the unanimous selection in a vote by students. "Unfortunately, the prize offered for the winning name couldn't be awarded because the name was submitted anonymously," says Tracy Wood, marketing manager for the store. Other top names were Gov's Mart, Gov's Stop, and Mills Mart (for director of housing Joe Mills).
