Chevron Puts My Rant to Rest

There have been some quiet things happening at our Nuuanu Chevron.  The signs are new and more brightly colored.  The new pumps are not only installed, they’re turned on.  You can see their little screens all lit up in the evening.

Chevron's Now Hiring Sign

The sign changed from telling us that they were renovating to serve us better to let us know they’re looking for people to hire.  Now, if you’re going to hire people, you need to have a place that’s open for these newly-hired people to work in, right?

Okay, this is a dead give away if ever I saw one!  CocaCola would only be there if they were processing a servicing agreement or delivering products.  They would only be doing either one of those things if they had an active business that was going to sell those products.

Then, I got more than a hint in an unexpected place.  The new force taking ownership of this station left us all a comment right here!  This is what was said:

Aloha Evelyn:

What can I say?  I did not expect that but I was very happy to see the announcement that they are opening up on Friday the 2nd of January and I was pleased to read through the other details about the services they plan to provide.  It will be so good to see it open again tomorrow morning!  I can’t wait!

Mahalo for your Business sign

Mahalo to you, Nuuanu Chevron, for getting things back up and running!  That chain-link fence was really beginning to get old!  Oh, we do need to get a vacuum installed again.  They took it out last time and never put it back.  I have my own theory about why you should have it there — I’ll talk to you guys about that later.  🙂

    A friend of mine says “hire the smile”. Good for Nuuanu Chevron.

    I think they’ll do just fine this time around, Keahi! I know I’m not the only one who feels this way about this station and its convenient location. They were taking down the fence this morning so I’m hoping for happy drivers this afternoon!
