People who pass through the City of Waverly will soon notice improvements at a local gas station located at 801 Pacific Ave. (just off Highway 12).
A 1,200-square-foot addition is planned, with construction to start Wednesday, May 22. The convenience store, gas station, and car wash will remain open as usual throughout the project. The targeted completion date is Friday, August 30.
The gas station will be rebranded to a Holiday Stationstore, and its new name will be Mid-County Holiday Waverly. The addition will provide new restrooms, extra space for grocery items, Holiday coffee, breakfast and lunch items, as well as more parking.
“This is a great addition for the Waverly community,” commented Waverly Mayor Connie Holmes.
Mid-County Coop, which is based in Cologne, has been the owner of the gas station, convenience store, and car wash since June 2018. Mid-County purchased the business from Mark Karels, who retired after 43 years of service.
Mid-County has been involved in the Waverly community for many years. The coop has a bulk fuel business in town, having purchased Padden Oil Company in 2000 and Howard Lake/Waverly Oil in 2003.
General Manager Bill Reimers said “Mid-County is happy to be able to bring a Holiday Stationstore to Waverly.” Holiday Stationstores is headquartered in Bloomington, and has 500 stores in 10 states. The stores are known for their large sizes, wide aisles, and extensive product selection.
“We will have the full offerings of a Holiday store – coffee, deli, pizza, and fountain pop – and we will also continue to sell fishing bait” Reimers said.
As a way to thank customers for their patience, Mid-County Holiday Waverly will be offering a special discount on beverages. All coffee and fountain drinks will be 89 cents.
Leading the Waverly store is Missie Beckmann, who has 19 years of management experience. Mid-County Holiday Waverly can be reached at 763-658-4662. The business is open Monday through Friday from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
