The new owner of the ‘Northline’ convenience store recently began a significant remodel of the building on Church Street. The project is scheduled to be complete in 3-4 weeks. The improvements include pay-at-the-pump, a new compliant restroom, new kitchen, new ceiling, and a new bank of coolers. Other aspects will not change such as the food and friendliness.
This store is 1 of 5 now owned by Frank Himani. Store manager Tony Parker said they were modernizing “virtually everything”. Until the kitchen is complete, food prepared at another store will be delivered to help meet customer needs. There are no job openings, as all currently employees have been retained. The store also has a alcohol resale permit. “We want to preserve the (Northline) store as much as we can, but we also need to update it”. Along with the new stone facade, the store’s new name will be “Starmart #5”.
