Amstar Gas Replaces Harder's Shell
The former Harder's Shell service station has transformed into a convenience store under new ownership.
Update: The Architectural Review Commission on Thursday night tabled Amstar's exterior design plans, with the expectation that the gas station will return with revised renderings in the near future.
An Amstar gas station opened Friday in the former Harder's Shell service station building. The store is one of the first Amstar locations in the Milwaukee area.
Harder's Shell station closed Oct. 1 after 29 years in business at 303 E. Hampton Road. In November, the gas station's new owner Fahim Beg received village approval to operate an Amstar gas station with an expanded convenience store in the place of the old three-bay service garage.
Amstar is scheduled to appear in front of the Architectural Review Commission Thursday night for signage approval. As of Thursday afternoon, the business does not have any signage except a small vinyl Amstar banner on a sign post.
Amstar's convenience store is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. and does not have liquor or beer.
