Spring Lake Heights has it all! Clean pristine beaches, great eateries, delis, friendly shops & businesses all conveniently located in a quaint area with an old school feel.
Meet Roland Banks, a Spring Lake business owner since 2015. Roland bought the corner gas station located at 2313 Route 71 in 2015. Although the station may look small, it’s far from it! At 2500 sq. ft., the building boasts a 3 bay garage and 2 pumping islands as well as parking.
Originally from Brick, Roland says he was never a “motor head”, nor were any of his family into mechanical repairs. He says he was mildly into cars and previously owned and operated an Automotive Ad Agency.
Many passing by or stopping for gas may not notice all that goes on at Roland’s station. This isn’t your typical gas station….it’s more like the old school service stations of yesterday. Roland admits his least liked aspect of running his shop is pumping gas, but his favorites are helping people save money and acquisition of vehicles.
This is how he has built up a following of loyal customers. Treating folks fairly and offering a good service is the name of the game. Aside from gas, there are rentals, sales, tires and repair services. Roland buys and sells cars, so if you’re thinking of either, why not pop over to 2313 Route 71 and check it out?
Mr. Banks has been planning future renovations and remodeling of the shop. He’s putting together specials and incentives for regular customers as well. And don’t forget, FREE OIL CHANGES for a year with every vehicle purchase!
Surely a Full Service Station-* Sales * Service * Repairs * Parts
