Just in time for the Taste of Tacoma,the new owners of the Chevron station in Ruston are finally pumping gas - at $3.49 a gallon (the lowest price in town for Chevron brand according to the owners). That rate is equal to the two stations up the hill at 46th and much lower than the owner paid when he filled the tanks a few weeks ago. After dealing with glitches in the card readers and other problems, the gas is finally flowing.
The newly remodeled interior store features over 60 varieties of beer and as many types of wine, plus all the munchies, milk, bread, cigarettes and other necessities. The store is open 5am to midnight daily for now, but the hope is to expand to 24 hours a day once Ruston Way opens.
The Ruston operation is managed by Garry Gill and his brother AJ. The duo have 12 years of experience in the gas station business. They purchased the station about a year ago. After converting the service garage to grocery space, they opened their doors with a focus on low prices and high customer service.
Garry feels lucky to have found Ruston. He says folks are friendly and appreciate having the station in town. Garry welcomes input from customers and invites everyone to stop in, take a look and buy local. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stop in and say hi to your new neighbor!
