Old Citgo being razed in Pa. to make way for credit union

December 28, 2006|by KATE S. ALEXANDER

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Bulldozers demolished the old Citgo gas station on Grant Street Wednesday to make way for a new credit union.

Local developer Ronnie Martin of Waynesboro, who owns the property, said Wednesday he is in the process of selling the land to Frick Federal Credit Union. Frick plans to use the land as the site of its new credit union. Martin said the sale of the land should be final by the end of the year.

Martin purchased the property in the spring of 2006, and had it rezoned for use by Frick.

"I did it to help them out," he said. "I just like to help small businesses grow and prosper in Waynesboro."

The new credit union will feature a drive-through window, Martin said.

Dwayne Smith, a worker with John Kahl Jr. Excavation of Quincy, Pa., said demolition, which began Wednesday, should be finished today. He said the entire building will be taken down to make room for a new one.
