No gas and now, no booze.

The Hub in Carnarvon has lost its licence to operate as an LCBO agency store.

“The agency store in Carnarvon was terminated by our board on Feb. 21 as a result of a breach of terms of operation by the agency store operator,” LCBO media relations co-ordinator Heather MacGregor told the Times, adding that the operator had been advised of the termination Feb. 25. “In this case, it had to do with proof of valid insurance coverage.”

The store at the intersection of highways 35 and 118 has been closed and locked since last week and the paper has not been able to reach management or the owner.

For the past couple of years, there have been issues with the availability of gas at the site, with the station often running out of fuel for days on end.

There has been no gasoline at The Hub since late last summer, when construction fencing was erected around the pumps.

Residents were informed that new pumps were being installed, but that has not yet happened.

Recently the fencing was taken down and last month, the Esso signs from the station were removed or taped over.

MacGregor said at this time, the LCBO has not posted a request for proposals for another agency store in Carnarvon.
