I had not been out Monticello road in years, probably since I was in high school, and I suspect this Amoco Food Mart went in after the last time I was there, and went under during the long interim. I can verify that it was still listed as being in business in the February 2007 Bellsouth phonebook, and that it was apparently sold at a master's auction in October of 2008.

If anybody actually bought the property then, they have as yet to do anything with it. It's a little curious that the Amoco branding is still up -- usually a company that is still around will want to get their signage off of defunct locations.

I am a sucker for the old-style gull wing light posts such as the one in around the north side of this building. I wonder if it predates the building itself, which looks sort of 80s to me..

  1. I would drive by this Amoco every morning on my way to school (2001-2005) and honestly don't remember ever seeing it open. It was commonly used as a place where people would set out furniture or other goods out in the open to sell. For about half a year there was a man who would put on headphones every weekday morning and dance in front of the Amoco- a highlight for many of us.

  2. I'm almost positive it was already closed by late 2005, for sure.

  3. I lived down the street from this store in the Denny Terrace area for years. My friend's father ran this business throughout most of the 90s. It is my recollection that the building was never used again once he closed shop in 98 or 99.

  4. It's been nearly thirteen years, and still the signage is up. Weird, isn't it? (I would figure someone would take it down by now).

    At least both Shells and Exxon seem to be getting customers (since that's the only exciting things on that part of Monticello Rd, while Dollar General is hidden up the street).

  5. Note: Sorry, more than thirteen years.

  6. This gas station was removed / cleared as of 01/2019. Was removed along with several other building in the vicinity as part of a community cleanup project by the local university.
