Update: New Fauntleroy Shell station might open this week

Thanks to everyone who has pointed out that branding work has been proceeding quickly on the new Fauntleroy Shell station at Fauntleroy/Alaska (that’s its official name, according to the city business license). We’ve been working to find out when they expect to open, and finally reached someone today by phone – they say it could be as soon as this Friday, depending on how “network installation” work goes. For those wondering “why two Shell stations at the same intersection?” – please remember that the pre-existing one is going to be part of the 4755 Fauntleroy Way mega-project. That does not mean it’s closing any time soon – but eventually (though the land deal for that project won’t be done till next year, according to the developers, and construction may not start till 2014).


  1. Is this going to be a Jacksons Shell? I cannot remember.

  2. Interesting that they’ll only be displaying the price of the lowest grade. You have to drive in to find the price of premium gasoline.

  7. Shell…killing Nigerians and poisoning the Arctic all in the name of profit.

    Shell should be boycotted.

  9. Who is reponsible for the trashed car wash that was built in the alley between the Shell and the new health care under construction? Huling used this car was but apparently no one is taking ownership. It needs to be demolished.
