For many years, the store at 100 W. Salisbury St. in Wrightsville Beach operated as a Scotchman gas station. It closed a few years ago and someone else opened it as the Wrightsville Beach Food Mart for a year or so before it shut down again, said Tony Wilson, director of the Planning and Parks Department for the Town of Wrightsville Beach.
The now-vacant, commercially zoned property on Banks Channel, which has been owned by Kenan Properties Inc. of Chapel Hill since December 1998, is currently for sale and the town has not received plans for any new project, he added.
Tax records show the 2.85 acres of land has a value of $2,044,500 and the 1,080-square-foot building is worth $104,400, for a total of $2,148,900. The gas pumps have been removed.
