James and Lorraine Impey built and opened Center Tower convenience store including the sale of Irving branded fuel at St. Johnsbury Center Station in November 1992. Mr. Suds Car Wash had been built and opened in 1989. This is one of the few remaining LOCALLY OWNED AND OPERATED gas station, convenience stores in the area. In 2014, when we stopped selling gas at Western Avenue Station, we started offering full service ( an attendant to pump your gas) from 7 am-3 pm on Tuesday and Thursday. We installed a high speed diesel island for convenience of our customers.
We offer a full deli with hot and cold sandwiches and daily specials. the deli is open from 5 am-2 pm Mondays, 5 am-1 pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and 5 am- 6 pm on Fridays. We can fax our daily specials weekly or you can check our web site for weekly listings of deli specials. You can call or fax us your order for pickup later the same day. We have a convenient inside restaurant area and picnic tables outside during the summer if you wish to linger.
A touch-less automatic car wash, as well as two self service wash bays are open daily. Vacuums to vacuum your car are on site. As you vacuum your car you can watch the wild ducks play in the nearby pond.
Our store is unique in having a wheel to spin for prizes if you purchase $5.00 or more--prizes range from a free car wash, a cookie, a juice or bag of chips. Our regular customers keep coming back for a spin. We offer gas tickets for a weekly drawing of $10.00/week, you receive the ticket after a fuel purchase. If no ones' ticket number is not drawn it accumulates to the next week, recently someone was lucky enough to win $90.00 in cash.
Friendly service, with that home town feel is unique to our store. In the summer we offer slushies and vanilla self-service creamies.
