The building at the site, 4621 Summerhill Road, has been razed. The property is owned by Dossani Paradise Management, which has headquarters in Grapevine, Texas. A headquarters employee said the company plans to have a "much shinier; much newer" convenience store built on the site. Company representative Anwer Ali said the plan is for the new store to be open by the spring. (Staff photo by Stevon Gamble)
