New Speedway at Maple/Miller

Gas, Slushies, and Krispie Kremes

by Sally Mitani

From the July, 2013 issue

The Maple-Miller intersection has a gas station again: a shiny new Speedway opened on the northeast corner, on the site of the derelict Marathon that closed in 2008. The intersection used to have two gas stations--even longer ago, a Shell station stood on the southwest corner. They were both the old-fashioned gas-and-repair shops that have mostly been replaced by larger, brighter convenience stores.

Increasingly, gas station/convenience stores are beginning to resemble fast food outlets that sell gas, and this is no exception. Speedway sells pizza, hot dogs, Slushies, and Krispy Kreme donuts. A customer loyalty card gives you a seventh donut, Slushie, or a number of other things free.

Speedway, 1300 N. Maple. 761-1107. Daily 24 hours. speedway.com    (end of article)
