Likely the Sol/Shell as I think the Texaco that was near one of the car rental places has been gone for a year or so. I may be 100% wrong but pretty sure Texaco has been gone for a year or so.

The Sol Station next to the Grand Marche Supermarket belongs to the Wathey Family and they will be building a big Marina from there to next to Paradise Car Rental.

Thanks Lesley. Is the Texaco near the airport still there or not?

The Texaco has been gone for more than a year.

Over two years and Avis has expanded there.

Interesting. I wonder whether the megayachts with tall masts will get in there.. Kinda close to the runway..

The (old) Gourmet Marche is turning into a Casino also.

That area has been ripe for re-development for a while.

So are they renovating the existing Sol station or closing it down? Hopefully not closing it down because it's a long way to the next station especially with the afternoon traffic jam.

It is completely being taken down for a new Marina and Condos area.

Thanks. I would think the Simpson Bay area would be ripe for a new gas station then.
