C-U Convenience Stores


In Korea, convenience stores may also have outdoor cafe areas

Convenience Stores in Korea

One of the things we noticed on our first trip to Korea in 2009 was the convenience stores. See here:


On our trip in 2015, we noted the ubiquitous convenience stores again C-U(and used them). A very common chain is 7-Eleven, which we also have in USA.

A fun new one for us was C-U. Why this one seems so interesting is that we live in a university town in Illinois called Champaign-Urbana, usually abbreviated to C-U! Our Visitor’s Bureau uses that to full effect, with “See You” in C-U etc.
