Thrifty Nickel Thanks You For 33 Great Years, Here’s To 33 More!

Hello and happy Wednesday Permian Basin! It’s a beautiful day outside from where I’m sitting, and I hope it is where you are too. Whatever you do today, make sure that you do it well and with a smile on your face. At least that’s how we like to do things at Thrifty Nickel, because it makes our customers happy.
