I'm sure most of you have seen the teardown mess happening where the service station was on Chestnut Ridge and Kingwood Dr...

Well, there's going to be a brand new Timewise gas station built there. It'll be completely rebuilt from the ground up, with new pumps and amenities, food store, and a state-of-the-art carwash. 


The Shell station caddy-corner from there will be getting the same treatment at some point as well. 

According to the contractor, there's not an exact timetable for completion right now. 

Also, I spoke with the nice folks that run the Smart Stop behind the construction site. They are aware of what a new store could do to their business, but they did seem optimistic after tons of loyal customers have told them not to worry.

Just what Kingwood needs, another gas station convenience store with an ice filled cooler containing single serve alcoholic beverages designed to promote drinking and driving. Texas logic at its best.

I'm torn about this, I live right there and I often go to the Smart Stop for beer and they are really nice, but they are expensive and their selection is so limited it's going to be hard not to go the much newer and most likely cheaper timewise.

Kingwood needs gas stations on the front end other than the small Shell station.  All the good stores are located on Kingwood Drive near Lake Houston.  Not all of us live on the back end of Kingwood so I'm happy about it.  I'm glad to see that they flattened that outdated station.Now if we could just get some decent restaurants, (NOT FAST FOOD!) in Kingwood that would be great. We have a few but not nearly enough.

@ZMAN: The fact that you buy your beer from a gas station actually says a lot about you.

Smart Stop are my people..I can go in there with no bra and just crawled out of bed ponytail and they don't care. They also have a decent enough selection of wine thats only marked up a couple if dollars over the grocery store.

@BooBear: So crawling out of bed & braless wine shopping at seedy convenience stores is something you have done more than twice?

@BooBear: Well aged wine nonetheless, been on the shelf since Reagan was President.

I drove down Kingwood Drive today instead of Northpark.  I noticed the teardown and was disoriented for a second.  That old gas station has been there for quite a while.

I already told you we can hang out whenever you want to, you don't have to keep hinting at it.

I like the people at smart stop store. They are so nice. I do think that they won't be able to compete with a new store right next to them.
