The riot that enveloped a suburban St. Louis neighborhood and destroyed a local QuikTrip store has forced the Tulsa-based company to focus on two priorities, spokesman Michael Thornbrugh said Thursday.
No. 1, make sure all the store's employees are safe and have access to counseling. And No. 2, offer them jobs at the other dozens of QuikTrips nearby but outside of that danger zone.
"Honestly, the only focus we have is we're taking care of employees and customers at other locations," Thornbrugh said. "We're been unable to even go in and do anything else at the location.
