    To send packages we would need a mailing address.

    Good luck.

    I would stock: HEET (denatured alcohol), canister fuel, Coleman Fuel, duct tape, zip loc baggies, beer, Knorr sides, Mac n Cheese, dehydrated potatoes, stuffing, tortillas, bagels, cheese (blocks and string cheese), tuna in packets, salmon/chicken in packets, pepperoni, jerky, nuts, dried fruits, FRESH FRUIT, pb and J, granola bars, Cliff Bars, Chocolate bars, Candy, Chips (Fritos), Pop tarts and other assorted snacks. Cold drinks of every variety are always a hit too.
    Anything's within walking distance if you've got the time.

    That sounds great! Can you please provide your address as I will be sending my son a re-supply box next week and it would be great to send it to your place. Also, what are you business hours?

    Sell denatured alcohol by the ounce. 20- 25 cents is the going rate.

    I was at the Shell station a week ago (if this is the one at Groseclose by I 81). Not too much there for resupply when I was there, esp dinner though it was the height of the thru hiker season (just ramen and tuna packet). I heard some hikers complain about the high prices, but of course that's why its "convenient." The lady there was very nice.

    I think I would add batteries to the list of supplies.
