If you’re planning to gas up your car today, this one is too good to pass up even it means driving a few extra miles to Norwalk. chestnutshell063004260.jpg

Last November (WestportNow Nov. 3, 2003), I let you know about the 49-cent, any-size coffee at the new Chestnut Shell Station at 307 Connecticut Ave., Norwalk, just off I-95 Exit 14. 

Well, the coffee price has gone up to 99 cents—still a bargain—but there’s a lot more beginning today with the station’s three-day grand opening celebration.

From 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. today, Friday and Saturday, you can buy a gallon of milk or 12-pack Pepsi for $1.99.

For 59 cents, you can get a dozen extra large eggs, a two-liter Pepsi, 20-oz. Sobe, 20-oz. Arizona Iced Tea, or a 16-oz. Snapple. 

And for a mere quarter, you can get a hot dog, popcorn, cotton candy, or a 12-oz. soda, a pint of milk, or an orange drink.

Best of all, the raffle includes a prize of free gas for a year.

That should help ease the pain of $2.19/9 per gallon regular gas.

And while youre there, kids can have their pictures taken with Elmo and Sponge Bob. If you’re at Friday’s 9 a.m. ribbon cutting, you probably could even get a picture with NorwalkҒs Mayor Alex Knopp. 

Chestnut Shell says it’s offering the bargains as a thank you to its customers—some old-fashioned savvy marketing on the eve of Independence Day.
