Smitty’s, gas bar at Gasoline Alley for sale
Looking for a piece of the commercial action on Gasoline Alley?
An opportunity exists in the form of the Smitty’s restaurant and Husky gas bar on the west side of Hwy 2. The businesses are being marketed by owner W. Chan Investments Ltd. of Calgary.
“We’re looking to sell the business and retain the property,” said Chris Chan, vice-president of W. Chan Investments.
Both premises underwent extensive renovations last year.
The restaurant was modernized and now has seating for about 120.
A lounge was also added, with this able to accommodate approximately 100 people.
“The site is approved for some VLTs,” pointed out Chan, adding that the new operator would still need to go through the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission process.
The service station was expanded to eight fuel dispensers from four, and received a new 1,700-square-foot convenience store.
A restaurant, service station and convenience store has been on the site since the late 1980s, said Chan. W. Chan Investments is currently operating the businesses.
“We think it would be best serviced by someone who is based out of Red Deer . . . and would be a big part of the Red Deer community,” said Chan.
He added that the Gasoline Alley location is a good one, especially with the ongoing development of the area.
“We think that it can be quite successful.”
