This place called the Plymouth Super Center is just that. No simple gas station here. Like in the old days you can get service on your car and also a car wash, nothing unusual there. But there's more inside where there are post office boxes to rent, a DHL desk, and even a dry cleaner.

Plus there is a little grille where you can sit under a giant cheeseburger and eat something greasy all the while enjoying a splendid view of the parking lot. 02-10
