Signs posted in the windows of the Exxon at 1001 South Capitol Street
say that the station is closing. (See, I do
look across the median into Southwest once in a while.) No date is mentioned on the signs, though I've heard rumors that it's within the next few days, and that the lot has been sold to an unnamed buyer. It might be worth noting--or it might not be--that Ruben Companies
owns the other two lots on the block next to the Exxon. Ruben also owns the former KFC/Taco Bell lot
in the next block, and the 1100 South Capitol property across the street. If you're looking for cheap cigarettes, the signs at the Exxon say they've got 'em!
