In case you haven’t already stopped at the new addition on South 12th Street, here’s all you need to know about the Weis Gas N’ Go.
On October 4, the gas station opened for business after a summer of construction work. Normal operating hours run from 7am to 10pm every day. The station has six pumps, including diesel, and an attendant is on-site.
The station is on the other end of the Weis Markets parking lot, close to the Goodwill storefront. Weis purchased the 798 S. 12th lot with frontage on South 12th Street for $1,100,000 in late January 2018. A Goodwill spokesman told LebTown earlier this year that its location on the lot would continue to operate for the foreseeable future.
Update Oct. 29: In response to reader questions, we followed up with Goodwill, who confirmed again that the store intends to operate there for the foreseeable future.
Weis Markets offers a rewards system in which store points can be used for gas discounts, and store manager Bob Cooper hopes that customers will benefit from being able to “shop for their groceries and fill up their tanks all in one stop.”
The store team donated $1,500 in total to local organizations upon launch; $500 dollars each to the Lebanon County Christian Ministries Food Pantry, the Lebanon Fire Department, and the Lebanon Community Library.
Previously, the nearest Weis Gas N’ Go location was in Ephrata.
