The former Family Video store in Greensburg could house a GetGo gas station and convenience store if plans are approved.
Planning director Jeff Raykes said the proposed plans would involve dismantling the structure at 531 S. Main St. and building the new gas station.
âThere is no final approval, but they have presented their plans and the planning board is currently working with the developer to close the required submissions for the project,â Raykes said, noting that the planning board approved the project with six conditions, including stormwater management. and obtaining a highway occupancy permit from PennDOT.
Rug Phatak, chief of staff and senior branding director at GetGo, said in a statement: âGetGo is constantly growing and evaluating new localization opportunities in our core markets. New stores are announced as plans are finalized.
The proposed changes to the batch come months after Family Video’s parent company announced the nationwide closure of all of its stores, including the one in Greensburg. At the time, officials at parent company Highland Ventures attributed the decision to reduced foot traffic and the lack of new movie releases caused by the covid-19 pandemic.
The Greensburg location, before being a video store, was a supermarket.
Minutes from the May planning committee meeting suggest the GetGo could include a 5,520 square foot convenience store and pumping station with 12 fuel pumps. Raykes noted that the convenience store will likely include groceries.
Online records show that the land is still owned by Family Video Movie Club Inc.
Site plans will likely be submitted to city council next month.
