The Esso station will rise again as a Shell

I have received a countless number of calls and emails from constituents, wondering why the very convenient Esso gas station at the corner of Cavendish and Mackle is closed and boarded up. The land has been purchased by Shell, which already has a full operation with Raffi Abikian at the corner of Westminster and Guelph. Raffi confirmed to me that he will have nothing to do with the new station, which he hears might even have a car wash.


We do not have any timetable when gas will be flowing again at Cavendish and Mackle. I do hope it is sooner than later for this is a very convenient location for all of us residing in this part of town.

How far back does this station go? It was originally owned by the Eaton Department store. Yes, there actually was a gas station called Eaton.
