Construction for $5M c-store and carwash to start this summer

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — The 1.3-acre Holiday Stationstores location will feature a c-store, gas station and 1,500-square-foot automatic carwash.

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Construction for a $5 million Holiday Stationstores location and carwash is projected to begin this summer in Detroit Lakes, according to Detroit Lakes Online.

The 1.3 acre site will be located across McKinley Avenue from an existing Holiday store, stated the article.

Construction for the convenience store will require removing a triplex on McKinley Avenue, two houses on Park Street, a nearby office building, an old carwash and a former gas station, reported the article.

The new Holiday site will occupy an entire half-block, continued the article, which is everything west of a nearby CVS Pharmacy and strip mall.

The new site will be more than double the size of the current Holiday site, informed the article, and the facility will also be twice as big as the current building.

The c-store will be situated on the south side of the site, including parking, and the gas pumps will be located on the north side of the site with additional parking spaces, added the article, and over 10 percent will be designated to landscaping.

The actual facility will be approximately 7,000 square feet, including the 1,500-square-foot automatic carwash, stated the article.

“It’s a nice project. It fits right in with the business corridor redevelopment plan we’ve been working on for years,” said Larry Remmen, community development director for Detroit Lakes, in the article. “We’re really excited they’re going to tear down the old Sinclair gas station and old carwash and the triplex and a couple of houses there, that’s great.”

The carwash will require a conditional use permit, reported the article, however since it is replacing an existing wash facility Remmen doesn’t foresee that to be an issue.

The new Holiday location is being constructed without any financial aid from the city or property tax reduction programs, noted the article.

“They want to get started right away this summer. The indication is that the existing property will be put up for sale,” stated Remmen in the article. “It’s an exciting project. It’s always wonderful to see redevelopment projects like this that keep improving our community.”
