You could pay $6 for a 2-gallon pack of milk at Holiday in Edina, but if you go to any Circle K station by June 30, you can get 2-gallons of any Schroeder milk for $2.99. It's the best deal in the Twin Cities on milk as Circle K franchisees try to establish themselves in the Twin Cities.


Go outside of Circle K, and the lowest prices will be on store brands. On Monday, June 17, Costco in St. Louis Park was $2.43 per gallon and Aldi on Lake St. in Minneapolis was $2.49 for skim or 2 percent. Most other stores such as Wal-Mart, Target, Cub and Rainbow are charging between $2.80 and $2.89 for store brands on Monday in their Minneapolis stores.

One more good deal Circle K through the end of the month? Hot dogs for 49 cents each, no limit. Neither the milk nor the hot dog price requires a coupon, although the milk is a 2 gallon limit per customer per visit.

Most of the 13 locations in the Twin Cities have only been Circle K's since last year, although the locations may still be co-branded as a Mobil, Exxon or BP station.
