Mid-County Coop has finished the new diesel island at the Holiday Stationstore in Cologne. The island, which officially opened Jan. 1, 2016, is now complete, with new tarring and fencing. The new finish features a clean, professional look, with four diesel dispensers and nine hoses.
The new diesel dispensers in the island are faster and more favorable for large trucks and other vehicles rolling into the Holiday store. The island includes two sets of dispensers that are connected to one another, meaning there is access to fuel on both sides of a vehicle. In the past, drivers would have to pull the hose to the other side of their truck to fill up in the diesel section. With the two connected dispensers, the hassle is taken out of the picture.
There will continue to be two grades of diesel fuel available in the summer: #2 diesel and premium diesel. Premium winter diesel will also be available during the colder months.
“The island will improve the station by offering easy access and speed for the customer,” Mid-County Coop general manager Bill Reimers said.
Along with the new diesel dispensers, Mid-County Coop also installed new gasoline dispensers, as well as a new sidewalk, running from the island to the store. The widened path makes it easier for people to enter the Holiday store.
The plans of this project were introduced over two years ago. The cost of the island totaled an estimated $400,000. Mid-County Coop is proud to host a top-of-the-line diesel island at the Holiday Stationstore in Cologne.
