    West Hollywood Shell Gas Station Reopens Under New Ownership

    The Shell Gas Station located at 8020 Santa Monica Blvd is BACK!!! The West Hollywood gas station, believed to be gone forever, has made a WeHo comeback this month and reopened under new ownership. According to an employee, they opened earlier this month and closed for several weeks to make some minor improvements.

    This particular Shell gas station has been at that location in West Hollywood, a few doors east of Crescent Heights Blvd for well over three decades.

    A new owner means new snack bar with a more extensive inventory. They are also working on getting their liquor license and hope to start selling California Lotto tickets soon.

    Some WEHO TIMES readers expressed disappointment when they pulled up to their favorite gas station and saw that it was closed with caution tape wrapped around the gas pumps. The snack shop located on the property was also complete empty. A notice was not left behind, leaving their customers to believe that it was gone for good.

    Then there were those who were happy to see it go away and make room for something new and different, saying the Shell station was rundown.

    Back in September the Department of Public Health conducted a routine inspection at the gas station under the old ownership, which resulted in corrective action and a follow-up inspection. The Retail Food Official Inspection Report dated Tuesday, September 5, 2023, gave the gas station an 82 score and a B grading which resulted in a suspended license and an order to close the facility for vermin infestation (roaches).

    Other violations included the improper storage of poisonous substances like cleaning detergents, bleaches, and cleaning compounds that were not stored separately from food, utensils, packing materials and food-contact surfaces. Hot Shot Roach Killing Powder and Aerosol-Hot Shot Ant, Roach, and Spider Killer were found to not be properly stored.

    Shell also received low marks for surface areas not being maintained clean. Single reach in a bottom shelf had an accumulation of debris and the sliding 2-door refrigeration unit metal track was encrusted with debris.

    The new ownership will hopefully keep a tighter and cleaner ship.

    Glad it’s back. I just wish they would have more modern tap-to-pay rather than requiring us to insert our cards which runs the higher risk of fraud.
