Only a few minutes from Thruway exit 48A and right down Bloomingdale Road in Akron, NY, you will find a small rez gas station by the name of 49 Express Pit Stop.
Back in 1993, Eric and his wife Eileen decided to open a gas station and convenience store that offers premium gas and quality products for a fraction of the price. They opened as an official reservation retailer, which means that they could sell their gas and other products without New York sales taxes. Since first opening, they have become a staple in the community for the cheapest gas and cigarettes in the area.
The 49 in “49 Express Pit Stop”, originated from owner Eric’s first car number when he started racing Go-Karts. He has kept the number right through Drags, Super Dirt Late Models, NASCAR, ARCA and Winged Dirt Sprinters. Eric remains an active community member as a United States Marine Corps veteran, civil war reenactment participant and pilot, and he loves to go parachuting from time to time.
49 Express Pit Stop is more than just your average, run-of-the-mill gas station; they sell premium products such as artisan cheeses, spreads, marinades, gift boxes, handmade items and so much more. Unlike big-name-brand gas stations, we have remained loyal to our customers in the area and will continue to offer the best prices for all your favorite products.
