There are two Kum & Gos just across the street from each other on the north side of Springfield.
Didn't they just close one of them?
That make one a Came & Went?
Well played!

(Fair warning: keep the humor up and I'm going to start expecting it.)
I had one MUCH less safe for the forum lined up, but opted for a PG comment.

Now I'm curious.. I can only imagine  :-D

2 Pilots at the 129 exit on 75 in Kentucky

At one time there was 2 Kroger stores like a mile apart in Lexington Ky

Somewhere in Georgia they have 2 Waffle Houses at the same exit

I've seen two of the same gas station brand right across the street from each other. However I see this situation where each one is intended to serve one direction of traffic. I cannot understand why one would put two of the same restaurant (for example) right next to each other.

I could see if one chain took over the other and they kept both open for lease compliance reasons, maybe, so as not to eat the cost of an early termination penalty. Maybe.

A NE intersection of our town has something similar.  Two Circle K gas station diagonally across from each other.  I thought chain consolidation might have originally been the case but these have both been open for several years now.  This GSV image is grainy but it shows the issue.

Can't remember if I've posted this here before...
There used to be 2 Sunoco's at the same intersection here, but one is now a Speedway.

Spencer, IA has 2 Casey's General Stores almost across the highway from each other. One is an older style building & the other is a newer style building.

The shopping area near Annapolis, MD has two Home Depots about 0.6 miles apart as the crow flies (1.4 miles via road).  There probably isn't any ground location where you could spot both of them, though, due to trees and buildings.  They are also separated by US-50/301/John Hanson Hwy.

Historic example from Downtown Seattle in the 1950s: two Bartell Drugs at the same intersection of 4th/Pike/Westlake.

When there's several of a store at the same intersection, are they owned by one owner??? Because if they were multiple franchisees then they must have a rivalry...
