Fairfax residents and people who regularly travel through the Atchison County town are jumping for joy that the gas station and convenience store has now opened for business. Located on Hwy. 59 in Fairfax between Fertilizer Service Company and the J Hwy. intersection, the place is a little slice of Heaven.

Besides the usual convenience store finds, 7th Heaven will also sell Cooper’s Express chicken, Hunt Brothers Pizza, burgers, sandwiches, and appetizers.
A grand opening will be held Thursday, October 26, at 1 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend, meet the owner, and experience Fairfax’s 7th Heaven.
