Proposed 7-Eleven at 69th St E & US-41

A 4,900 sq. ft. convenience store (7-Eleven) with 16 automotive fueling stations, 2 fueling stations for diesel trucks, and car wash are proposed on 2.95-acres in Palmetto.

Uppy’s Shell gas station is catty-corner to this project and it’ll be interesting to see if this changes how they display their fuel prices. Uppy’s advertises a low price per gallon of fuel on their big sign, but the fine print says you must purchase a car wash to get gas at that price. Without buying a car wash, you pay up to 20-cents a gallon more than the advertised price. Will a new 7-Eleven across the street bring changes to Uppy’s fuel advertising practices? Let us know your thoughts in the comments or on social media.
