OK, probably not. AMPMBut you may be interested to know that local BP stations will be getting a new name soon. BP is selling 28 Indianapolis franchise locations, each of which will be rebranded as ampm. Until recently, ampm locations were mainly on the West Coast. Any new convenience store offerings? Indeed. Apparently they have a mix-and-match special that comes with three of any combination of corndog, hot dog and hamburger, for $1.99. Mmmmm. Chicago-based NRC Realty Advisors is managing the sale and planning a meeting for potential buyers on July 18.
  • Are all area BP's franchises? If not, then hopefully some will remain BP. I like the Cafe at newer BP stores. They have way better gas station fare than the typical reheated hot dogs of questionable origin.
  • I want Sheetz, WaWa or UDF.
  • yes - sheetz! if i'm thinking of the same sheetz in pennsylvania with the awesome hot dogs? i think you order them on a computer and then they bring them out?? that's a good hang-over memory....
  • Cory, why don't you post on why the city has not made a decision on MSA? I mean, for crying out loud, are they warming their hands up there on high? Is it chilly on 25? They apparently are waiting until the END of the summer now. Why not just tell everyone you'll make a decision in 2009, and beat expectations? I thought the mayor was a developer.
  • hey cory - any news on this? i spotted it on skyscrapercity:

    The proposed 12-story student housing on Illinois St. between Walnut and St. Clair is going to be called Paramount Towers. i wasn't aware of any student housing going up in that area - and i think it's a great location!
  • Will they also be taking over some of the closed BP locations such as the one at Emerson and Washington or 56th and Georgetown? Those have been closed forever, just sitting there.
  • I am in the market for a gas station! I need one on 82nd Street somewhere between I-69 and the Castleton Mall entrance. There is only one station (Speedway) there, and it's always PACKED. I hate waiting in line forever and ever any time I want to get gas during the work day! I'll gladly welcome BP or ampm or Sheetz or WaWa or UDF or ANYONE!

  1. Liberals do not understand that marriage is not about a law or a right ... it is a rite of religous faith. Liberals want "legal" recognition of their homosexual relationship ... which is OK by me ... but it will never be classified as a marriage because marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman. You can gain / obtain legal recognition / status ... but most people will not acknowledge that 2 people of the same sex are married. It's not really possible as long as marriage is defined as one man and one woman.

  2. That second phrase, "...nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens..." is the one. If you can't understand that you lack a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and I can't help you. You're blind with prejudice.

  3. Why do you conservatives always go to the marrying father/daughter, man/animal thing? And why should I keep my sexuality to myself? I see straights kissy facing in public all the time.

  4. I just read the XIV Amendment ... I read where no State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property ... nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens ... I didn't see anything in it regarding the re-definition of marriage.

  5. I worked for Community Health Network and the reason that senior leadership left is because they were not in agreement with the way the hospital was being ran, how employees were being treated, and most of all how the focus on patient care was nothing more than a poster to stand behind. Hiring these analyst to come out and tell people who have done the job for years that it is all being done wrong now...hint, hint, get rid of employees by calling it "restructuring" is a cheap and easy way out of taking ownership. Indiana is an "at-will" state, so there doesn't have to be a "reason" for dismissal of employment. I have seen former employees that went through this process lose their homes, cars, is very disturbing. The patient's as well have seen less than disireable care. It all comes full circle.
