GetGo is for Lovers

New gas station at the corner of Bunts Road and Detroit Avenue on Valentine's Day.

The GetGo gas station at Bunts Road and Detroit Avenue is expected to open on Valentine's Day.

The plans for the gas station at the busy intersection call for a 5,600-square-foot brick building, with eight fueling stations (16 pumps).

The GetGo station — unlike the Pennsylvania-based company’s typical gas station — will offer a few grocery items, prepared foods, a patio and a Wi-Fi café.

The site will also feature bio-retention landscaping, helping to alleviate the city’s storm water management issues, a move lauded by city officials.

The project didn’t come without criticism from neighbors.

Giant Eagle sold its property across the street at 14013 Detroit Avenue to Urban Active in 2007. However, plans at the site to build a workout facility never came to fruition.

The building had been vacant since 2007, when Giant Eagle finished its move across the street to 14100 Detroit Avenue.

Now if only Giant Ego would rehab and clean up their grocery store across the street. Filthy aisles, dirty shelves, vegetables that have seen fresher days, deli choices that are anything but healthy, and a consistently rude and unhelpful staff - well it almost makes one want to shop at Lakewood's other "gourmet" grocery store option - Sapell's Bi-Rite on wonderful 117th St. ------------ well almost!

Opening one month behind schedule? I thought GetGo was slated to open January 15th. Guess the cold weather didn't help. Awaiting with anticipation so I don't have to wait at the increasingly jammed packed GetGo across the street or on 117th Street.
