New Mobil Gas Station to Open Friday in Saline

The new gas station is located on West Michigan Avenue near Austin Road.

A new Mobil Station is expected to open on West Michigan Avenue Friday, and construction crews are applying the final adjustments to gas pumps on the outside and product displays in the inside of the store.

Sam Ajami of Canton is the manager and son of the owner. The family also owns a truck stop on Ecorse Road near Romulus.

Ajami had hoped to open the station this summer but met with delays. Nevertheless the delays created a better store, he said.

“The longer it took, we started adding stuff,” Adjami said. This “stuff” included a large freezer, attractive wood paneling and expanded product offerings.

The station will sell E-85 (85 percent ethanol fuel) as well as traditional fuel mixes. In addition they will offer ready-to-eat sandwiches, hotdogs, coffee, iced coffee, and other drinks.

The store will also stock common grocery items.

“We want to provide the people of Saline with an easy one-stop shopping experience,” Ajami said. “Customer service is number one.”

The new station is located on the south side of West Michigan Avenue adjacent to The Village Party Store, Dance Alliance and Tancy’s Tailoring.

Does the city master plan indicate we need more gas stations? That corner of the city is an eye sore and this isn't helping.

For those who live on that side of the city, we do not consider it an eyesore...Maybe take into consideration that each person interprets and views things differently.

I don't think that side of the city is an eyesore.

I agree others may have another interpretation; but you have to admit there is some truth to it...in relative terms.
