A renovated Hess gas station, with a “Hess Express” convenience store, is expected to reopen in July at the intersection of Little River Turnpike and John Marr Drive in central Annandale.
The new 2,500-square foot store will have self-serve Dunkin’ Donuts, along with beer, coffee, ice, and other items typically found in a 7-Eleven, said Hess construction manager Damon Bastin. A prefabricated, modular building housing the store is scheduled to be delivered May 2.
The renovation project also includes a canopy over the gas pumps, landscaping and acorn streetlights in accordance with the Annandale revitalization plan, and reconfigured access points. There will be just one entrance on John Marr and one on Little River. Currently there are two driveways on each street. Plans to expand and renovate the Hess station first surfaced about eight years ago.
