Sunday is the last day, then the building will be knocked down.

The demolition process is not expected to start until next month.

Then a new beginning. The rebuilding process will take between 5 and 7 months, and everything will be brand new.

So if this is your place to stop for the convenience store or the gas pumps, the car wash, or the C N Brown fuel facility, stand by for "progress."

The lot is sizable and who knows what the new building will contain, or even look like.

But we should be able to watch the progression soon and celebrate a grand opening in early 2024.

Meanwhile, the employees still working at this location will move to another Big Apple.

And we’ll see if the operation at this Big Apple returns to 24 hours a day, next year.
