Snider Plaza Shell Station May Expand

But not for the reason you may expect.

It’s not to accomodate the roving packs of Rovers with additional pumping stations, but rather the thirsts of those drivers. When they get home, at least.

Marino’s Service Station is requesting a 640-square-foot addition to its convenience store to add a beer and wine section, a request that would more than double the size of the store. The City Council will take it up tonight.

The Planning and Zoning Commission unanimously approved the project, but it could come up against more debate tonight. Mayor Dick Davis was an ardent opponent of beer and wine sales when it came to voters two years ago, opposing the measure vocally and financially. We’ll see if any of that returns tonight, at 5 p.m.

    Just saw someone else’s comment about this on Facebook and couldn’t agree more. The people who work there are so rude and their gas is expensive. I will go almost anywhere but here. The only time I patronize this station is if it is an emergency.

    Highest gas prices anywhere in Dallas. Maybe that’s why they don’t have signs showing their gas prices like every other gas station in the universe.

    Signs are usually mandated, no station would have them if they didn’t have to.

    Have never been to this station, but gladly gave my business in the 80’s to Marino’s at Knox and Central. Mr. Marino was usually there. Nicest guy in the world. But he is surely retired by now and probably sold the business.

    They must make enough profit selling gas rudely at a higher price. Location, location, location.

    I’ve only stopped there once and the lady was on her cell phone talking the entire time during my transaction. You could also tell she was crafting by the materials all over the counter. Anyhow, contrary to popular beliefs, there is a difference in gasoline brands and currently nothing beats Cheveron’s Techron fuel additive. So needless to say, I tend to buy my fuel at Chevron stations.

    How timely. I just stopped in there for the first time yesterday. I was in need of an oil change and inspection and Speedee’s inspection machine was broken. I have never experienced people so annoyed with customers before. They truly seemed inconvenienced that I was there – lots of grumbling and deep sighing. Another lady stopped in to have her tire checked for a nail and you would have thought she asked the guy for a kidney the way he reacted to her request.

    I wonder who owns the station? My husband calls me Mike Shapiro (old Dallasites remember “Let Me Speak to the Manager”?) – but I always think if I were a business owner I would want to know. Maybe the owner is a jerk too
