A Fairmont Shop ‘n Save will soon add a gas station to its services.
The Fairmont board of zoning appeals approved a conditional use permit for the store on Fairmont Avenue.
City Manager Robin Gomez said the fueling station will be on the right side of the parking lot.
He added that he does not expect traffic to increase significantly due to this project.
“Will it draw other people to stop and put gas in, it may, but the intent and in all likelihood, the majority of the people fueling up will be the existing Shop ‘n Save shoppers,” said Gomez.
Store representatives told Gomez they expect to finish construction by the end of this summer.
