We love the idea of anyone starting a business out of spite. Well, that’s exactly what the owner of a the convenience store on East Broadway did. After opening a franchise of 7-11 in Southie and then having issues with the company, Abu Musa decided he would open a direct competition and run them out of business. He called it 6-12! You can read all about this in a new article in The Boston Globe by Billy Baker.
According to my 14 year-old, a connoisseur of Southie convenience stores, 6-12 has some of the best deals in town. They also are a UPS Access Point and you can purchase your Charlie Cards there too!
