    That is an interesting point as I can remember as a kid when there were gas stations dotting the area. Right where the new OnCue is going in, across the street from there at the old Montgomery Ward Auto Center, on the corner of NW Hwy & Penn, NW Hwy & Independence, just south of NW Hwy on May at 50th, NW Hwy & Portland, & just south on Portland around 58th, NW Hwy & Macarthur, and IIRC on the east side of the Classen Circle at 50th. I sure there were others.

    It's really the same for Classen, apart from a dodgy 7-11.

    I'm sure that's why OnCue was so keen to find a site along there. They looked at a bunch of different (and expensive) options before settling on 13th & Western.

    They do, but it's not only about that either. There isn't a single OnCue that I actually drive by on a daily basis, yet it's the only gas/convenience store I patronize. I go where I need to go to get to it. There's lots of that going on too because of how they do business.

    Very true.

    But they also have lots of locations now which means that there are plenty to choose from, and their stores all stay busy.

    Same. Drive 5 miles out of my way to go to OnCue. I pass multiple other gas stations. It's the closest OKC will get to QT in my lifetime. They have a good model and continue to improve.

    The OnCue in that weird location in Moore off I-35 is doing great business so far? That location is not a really smart site selection in my opinion

    I think they are getting to the point where the best locations are in place and the sites going forward could be more marginal. The thing is, though, that many people will drive out of their way to patronize an On-Cue. And I would confess that I’m one of them. I don’t go to sh!t gas stations, and I certainly am not putting any ethanol in my vehicles.

    I do not put any ethanol in my vehicle either

    Sad times for the area. This house of a time, size and color that always reminded me of the house around 14th & Broadway that I had during the 1990s. Both houses wound up as about the last thing on the block. And now this one is gone. So many times it is just the dumb luck of location that determines what old buildings survive. The former Sabolich buildings at 10th & Western that burned a couple weeks ago is/are another example. A nice little Post War era stone building that still had a nice exterior covered up (but not removed) by iffy "updating" that had the misfortune of being in a location where future development made it expendable. Enter neglect and destruction by fire.

    If OnCue ever goes public, I am buying in. It is amazing the mentality of driving past 2 or 3 crusty corner gas stations just to use an OnCueExpress. They are dominating the market.

    Are Oncues built by the same contractor? They have built so many the past few years, you would think if the same set of workers have worked on them they would almost have the blueprints memorized by now. lol

    The OnCue at NW 164th and Portland is progressing. I would guess It may be open in mid-October at this point.

    Default Re: OnCue OKC Expansion

    i am very surprised that there is no oncue gas station along the sw 29th street axis. in particular, the stretch between walker and may along 29th could really use a vast, modern, clean gas station.

    the i-35 exit at s.e 15th street could also use an oncue, i always see huge lines of cars waiting their turn at the small gas stations in the area.

    It would be interesting to see if they could fit one in on the NW corner of 29th and Penn. That location would kill it, but no idea what that land is zoned for and also there's sort of a weird traffic pattern in that area.

    I drove by the proposed location on Rte 66 just east of the Kilpatrick and noticed the OnCue sign has been removed and a new for sale sign was up. Also there was an excavator on site working. Has OnCue pulled out of this location completely or relocated to another site in the area?
