Local Shell gas station closes

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on February 20th, 2013

Update:

We have just been informed that the future of a gas station at the 15th Ave NW and NW 70th St location is still unknown. Previous gas station employee Tom confirmed the bankruptcy and that the future of the property is in the hands of the bank.

“We heard from the bank a couple of days ago. We still don’t know if someone will invest and make it a gas station or if the bank will sell it and put up a building or something,” said Tom.

We will continue to keep readers updated when more information comes to hand.

Original Post:

The Shell Gas Station on the corner of 15th Ave NW and NW 70th St has closed. Earlier today workmen put up a fence around the property and boarded up the windows.

Garden Sushi owner, Tsering Lama, operated his food tent on the property and has been forced to vacate. Lama said that the owners of the Shell gas station filed for bankruptcy.

Lama reported that “the property is now owned by the bank” and that it remains uncertain whether the it will reopen as a gas station or not.

We are continuing to investigate and will update readers with more details when they become available.
