This article reports that urban convenience stores face unique challenges, key among them a lack of reasonably priced real estate. But that hasn't stopped Harry Singh, president of Brooklyn, New York-based Bolla Management, from setting up shop in the New York market. Singh owns 28 gas stations in New York City and Long Island — 21 Mobil stations with five On the Run convenience stores, two Exxon Corp. stations and five Sunoco stations with three APlus convenience stores — with one more site under development. The aesthetic considerations extend to the inside of the property as well.
