Meet Suzy Youssef, new owner of Plympton Gas and Convenience, 280 Main St., Rte. 58, Plympton.
After working 16 years for IBM in distributive software, Suzy said, ”I told myself it’s time for me to own my own business – time for a new adventure.”
She took her time to find just the right situation, and after two years, found Plympton! Suzy and her husband have two gas stations, but none with a convenience store. The Stoneham and Medford businesses are fairly close to home, but she really likes the hour-long commute which brings her to another world – out of the city and into the country – where horses and trees are common elements, and the city sights and sounds are left behind.
Right in the heart of historic Plympton Village, Plympton Gas and Convenience serves its customers 7 days a week, from early until late enough, with competitive gas prices and the convenience of beer, wine, groceries, and of course, lottery.
“I’d love to see one of our customers hit it big,” Suzy said. “Not for us; for the fun of seeing the lottery won here.”
Suzy says she feels lucky to have found Plympton Gas and Convenience. “We have a good team here. Well organized, a really clean place.” She credits former owner Kelly Craig for giving her the time to show her how the Craigs had run the business. “Most people, you buy the place and that’s it. Kelly really helped us from the beginning.”
“I hope to stay here for a long time.”
