The gas pumps and concrete islands of the former BP gas station at Old Georgetown Road and Fairmont Avenue have been demolished.
But the property has pulled an Eastham's. Like Eastham's, the site is about to be redeveloped as a luxury residential building. But, also like Eastham's, its service station structure remains.
Where Eastham's has temporarily leased their space as a repair shop, the BP has now reopened its convenience store.
My guess is, the convenience store is leasing the space, which allows the landowner to earn income until construction begins later this year.
The shop closes very early in the evening, but if you happen to walk past it on your way to work, or home, it could indeed be convenient.
