Shell Station To Close In North County
Another gas station in North County has closed — at least for now.
The Berkshire Eagle reports a sign on the door of the Shell station on Curran Highway says it is "temporarily closed." A spokesperson for the owner, Waltham-based Global Partners, said the company is re-evaluating how that property is being used.
This is a latest in a long line of gas stations that have closed in North Berkshire.
Today, the dominant supplier of retail gasoline is Cumberland Farms, with three stations in North Adams, one in Williamstown and another in Adams.
Another issue faced by some residents as a result of the Shell station closing is that it was the only place to redeem fuel points earned by customers of Stop & Shop in farthest Northern Berkshire. There had been two in North Adams a year ago; now, there are none.
Stop & Shop customers in Williamstown, North Adams, Adams and Florida have to travel to the next-closest Shell, which is in Cheshire.
Meanwhile, the spokeswoman for Global Partners said the closing is temporary as the company analyzes its approach.
