Washington Township Getty Closed
Garage owner Ted Foundopoulos said he plans to take some time off and may open a new garage at a different location.
The Getty gas station in Washington Township closed this week.
Garage owner Ted Foundopoulos previously told Patch he would be leaving the business because he lost of $58,000 security deposit when Getty Petroleum Marketing went bankrupt. There are plans to turn the station into a BP, but the company wanted an additional $30,000 security deposit for a 14-month contract, according to Foundopoulos.
The Getty had been out of gas for weeks but Foundopoulos, a popular local mechanic, had continued operating the garage.
Foundopoulos previously said he plans to take a month off to think about what he will do next, and hopes to find a new location for a garage.
