What do you call a bull that sleeps?
A bull dozer.
Our kids love that one.
Have you seen the bulldozers in front of our Fairhaven location? If you’re like other folks we’ve heard from recently, you’re wondering why they are snoozing there. If you’re a pretty sharp cookie, you’ve also noticed that there is a conspicuous piece of parking lot equipment that appears to be missing. Yep, you guessed it – the gas tanks!
Okay, I can’t help myself. Just one more.
What 10-letter word starts with g-a-s?
I know. Groan. That one didn’t pass the kid test, sailing right over their wee-little heads, but I included it for your reading pleasure anyway.
Okay, so seriously. What’s up with Fairhaven? You’ve twisted my arm. It’s actually pretty exciting, and I think you’ll be pleased in the end when the bull(dozer) wakes and ambles back home. Basically the gas pumps are coming out. The pumps were old and the Yorkston family, owners of Yorky’s Markets, discovered they were leaking and immediately started the removal process and clean-up of the contaminated soil surrounding the old tanks.
It’s a good thing because “anyone who thinks the price of gas is too high, raise your right foot.” Get it? Stole that one right off the good ‘ol internet. Did you know that National Tell a Joke Day is right around the corner on August 16? I digress.
Seriously, folks. More parking is no laughing matter. For those of you who can’t raise your right foot off the gas pedal, yanking the gas tanks gives you more parking options in front of Yorky’s. More convenience is always a good thing.
There are more changes afoot inside the store. Yorky’s is doing some interior revamping. No major remodels yet, but with the gas tanks gone, they will transition away from a convenience store model to a bottle shop concept. While you’ll still be able to get some of your traditional convenience store favorites and mail a package at the post office along the way, you’ll also be able to browse a robust selection of wine and beer. And what tasty beverage goes best with pizza? Mmm hmm.
So, take home message: don’t be afraid! Tiptoe past the sleeping bull(dozer) outside and keep visiting us. We’re open and ready to serve you a fresh pie hot from the oven. And just think, all the inconvenience of walking around the fence to get to us will be over in about two weeks and worth the wait.
If I were you, I’d start planning your picnics now. Where will you take Pizza’zza and your favorite cold one? The Village Green? Boulevard Park? Marine Park? Or maybe you’ll enjoy the gas pump-free view so much, you’ll set up for dinner on the bench outside the market. Either way, pick up your pizza and beverage and head to your favorite strip of green grass or rocky shoreline to munch and sip under our plentiful summer sun.
Hold your bottles high; let’s toast to change and growth!
