We need another gas station like we need another hole in the head.
What we do need is Ben Franklin and the other businesses. The way I see it is that the almighty dollar is driving the entire deal. It is better to shut down 5 businesses and make a bunch of money than to spend some to maintain the current building and collect rent from the 5 successful businesses that the people of Tomahawk support.
Take away business from the current gas stations, close the 5 businesses and hurt a bunch of people that will lose their business and their jobs just to make a buck.
