7-Eleven joins expanding businesses

On the heels of expansions announced by two well-known Colonial Beach businesses last week, the Colonial Beach 7-Eleven began an extensive remodeling project this week.  The store will remain open during the construction, which should be finished by Thanksgiving.

Locally owned and operated by Lonnie Phillips, a lifelong Colonial Beach resident who has operated the 7-Eleven for 39 years, the Colonial Avenue store has become a gathering place for local residents attracted by Phillips’ enthusiastic attitude.

Phillips said the remodeling will be confined to the gas service area and he hopes disruptions can be held to a minimum.  

“We are putting in new four wide gas pumps, new tanks, a new canopy and it will have a new configuration,” he said. “It’s going to be a challenge, but will allow us to offer even better service when it is finished.

“We will be able to offer all blends, diesel at all four corners and pay at the pump capabilities.”

Phillips’ legendary enthusiasm when talking about sports, Colonial Beach or his customers should keep business steady even during the construction period.  

“I am grateful for my customers,” Phillips said.” I love this community.  It is a great place to live, work and raise a family. And, I truly value our patrons and hope they will not be inconvenienced as we grow.”

Phillips’ 7-Eleven improvement joins two other business expansions underway at the Beach.

Beverly and Lloyd Alspaugh, well-known owners of the Rankin’s Hardware and the Rankin’s Appliance and Furniture stores, opened their latest business venture on Oct. 4 — The Peddler’s Market, at 501 Euclid Avenue.

And Bobbi Adamson, the popular owner of The River Gym, is moving her physical fitness business into the newly remodeled space in the old Metro Golf Carts building at 116 Washington Avenue.  The new River Gym will open by Nov. 1.
