Recently, Connie pointed out the sign from the station was missing. We had to wonder if it was closing, under new ownership or just undergoing an identity crisis with its petroleum products...
One year ago, to the very month, this business had tried to get changes approved which would allow it to become some kind of drive through "wings and things" place, and (in summary) the neighborhood was all, like, NO WAY!!!! (Click here for that story) The proposed changes did not go through.
So a few days ago--the whole time watching for process servers out of the corner of my eye--I went inside the gas station to find out what was up, BESIDES the price of gas.
I'd never been inside before. I was amazed by how small the store area was, since the building is quite big. I guess the old car wash part of the station is sealed off, and you have to wonder what kind of rusty relics of another era are sealed inside? Working at the car wash, yeah.
The clerk told me the sign was being changed because the station was under new ownership. The station would now be known as "Fayo."
