The very busy gas station and store on 110th street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard has closed. It is now a Western Union. This must have just happened because they were still there the last couple of days.
Cars and cabs were pulling up while I was taking photos trying to figure out what happened. This gas station was always packed and very needed in the area so I can’t imagine that lack of business was the reason. We had written on our blog rumors of developers looking at this space. I can’t see a Western Union supporting that large lot of land. That is valuable real estate. It was nice having the bright 24 hour lights on the corner late at night. We will write a follow up post on this tomorrow. Stay tuned.
