BP offers its stations fresh new look for stores. BP 'to go'BP is rolling out a fresh new image for some of its convenience stores. Every site is different in layout and service offerings, 'to go' offers conveinance stores an option to fit their needs.
**'Crude oil spill' BP left this area years ago, they were told - 'to goBP!' Much cheaper gas prices would be a better marketing stragety. A fresh, flexible and affordable retail image is an option and not really necessary. *Will they charge higher gas prices to pay for this?
**A conveinance store? I could careless, retail stores are much cheaper.... The gas station conveinance stores sell more 'stuff' then gasoline.
**I used to go to a 'hole in the wall' gas station because they had the cheapest price - now it's an ARCO! ...Go Figure! They have spent a lot of money to improve the building and make it look better than what it looked like before. *Putz!! bwaaa ha ha ha !...
**Is BP trying to climb out of a disastrous public image, the 'ugly black oily gulf hole?'
Will this artice be up from Fri to Mon?
Drive vehicles with high mpg, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!

Another place updating their decor, kind of like Cumberland Farms in Mass. Doesn't affect their reputation.

After BP polluted our Gulf they need a branding makeover. Too bad they cannot offer the same to our polluted waters and negative image they created for our local tourism industry. Thanks for nothing!
