Best way to get to a store from an airport

[Little Rock Transportation Filter]: I have a 3+ hour layover in Little Rock, Arkansas and during that time, I need to get to a store that is near the intersections of route 630 and 430. What is my best option?

I will be there this Friday during the afternoon. I have the option to

a.) take a taxi (20 miles round trip= ~$45?)
b.) rent a car (they quoted me online as $24.98, but I'm under 25 so there will be a litany of charges on top of that)
c.) taking some sort of public transportation provided near the airport?

Punctuality is a key, because I don't want to miss my flight, but is there anyone familiar with the area that could suggest an economic course of action?

If punctuality is key, take the cab.

And get the cab driver to wait while you go into the store.

Response by poster: I really only have to stop by and pick something up, so I don't think the rental car will put me in trouble with punctuality, but if it costs egregiously more, I'd love to skip it...

Take the cab. For the sake of what will likely be less than $20, why deal with the rental car company? What happens if there's a huge lineup, they don't have a car right away, or any other unexpected problem with them occurs? Just grab a cab, have the driver wait, and get back to the airport asap.

(I live in Little Rock, and) public transportation is not a practical option. Between the other two, I think that, as cgg notes, the cab is the less likely to have an unexpected delay.
