Gas Station to Replace Former Rite Aid In Giant Shopping Center

Exciting news, the former Rite Aid store in the Giant Shopping Center, empty since a new store was built across the street, will be torn down in favor of a gas station! Rumors had swirled since the move that the building would become home for a chain restaurant (I heard IHop on more than one occassion) but, at Tuesday night's Borough Council meeting, plans for the station were unanimously approved.

The station "will feature four double-sided pumps (eight fueling stations), served by a small attendant's kiosk. Three grades of regular gas will be available; no diesel fuel will be sold. Preparations were being made but plans were not yet firm, said Kerry Eck, a Giant real estate representative, to make biofuels available there at a later date."

Gas will be sold under the Giant brand name and the station will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week.

No word on when the station will open but with Wawa building a Super Wawa across the street, fuel options in that area will be plentiful.

This will most likely be a Giant Supermarket gas station. This means I can actually redeem my gas points. YIPPEE!!!

Too bad we cant get a Sheetz in there, that would be great. But what I would really like to see is the Val reopened somewhere, I miss having an old diner like that around.

I can only hope we have as many gas stations per square mile as we do pharmacies, I hate being unbalanced.

Phoenixville does have a lot of gas stations, but they are all clumped together. I live on the north side and it is rediculous that I have to go all the way through town to get gas. It takes just as long to get to a phoenixville gas station as the wawa in royersford. This Giant gas station will be a little closer (without all the lights and stop signs)!

I don't understand why we will need a gas station across from a Super Wawa. Now an IHOP, that would have been much better!!!

All the way thru town to get gas from the North Side??? Do you not know the back way out of the North Side? Get on Township Line Rd and head to the Lukoil, it will take you about 5 minutes

It will be nice to finally be able to use the Giant gas points that are always showing at the bottom of my receipts. And hopefully with the Wawa going in across the street, the prices will be competitive rather than the gouging that occurs at the other gas stations around town.
