FIRST REPORT, 4:06 PM FRIDAY: This story is a work in progress, but we wanted to share what we know so far – Barnecut’s Service Station, long located at 41st/Admiral Way, has been sold, and today is the last day it’s doing auto-repair work, according to the person on duty we spoke with this afternoon during a visit to the station to check out reader tips. The gas station itself will remain open until July 1st. What happens after that, the person on duty couldn’t tell us; we’re trying to find out – nothing has turned up in public records yet.
9:31 PM NOTE: No additional info yet – multiple inquiries out. But since someone mentioned the mural on the back of the building, facing the south side of the Metropolitan Market (WSB sponsor) parking lot, paying tribute to the service station’s historic look, we went by for a quick photo, added above.
MONDAY FOLLOWUP: Barnecut’s confirms it’s closing after this month. We asked today if there’s any sort of an event planned for longtime customers to come by and say thanks and goodbye; not currently, but we’ll be checking back.
Sorry, comment time is over.
