Im­pe­rial Mo­tel to fall un­der wreck­ing ball

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

The Im­pe­rial Mo­tel will soon be noth­ing more than a mem­ory. Ac­cord­ing to Roger Gougeon, a spok­ersper­son for Petro – T, the mo­tel will be de­mol- ished as soon as the frost is out of the ground and a com­pany has been cho­sen. “I ex­pect it will be de­mol­ished within the next month,” he said, adding: “It is be­ing taken down with the plans to build a new res­tau­rant – ei­ther a Mcdon­ald’s or a Tim Hor­ton’s. We’re wait­ing for ap­proval for the new res­tau­rant which won’t be built be­fore 2013.”

The Petro-t gas sta­tion will get a new look at the same time as the build­ing of the new res­tau­rant. “We are re­new­ing all our equip­ment. The gas canopy will be big­ger and we will re­lo­cate it to the right side of our build­ing. I be­lieve all the work will be done in 2013 at the same time,” Mr. Gougeon ex­plained.

The empty Im­pe­rial Mo­tel will fall to the wreck­ing ball within the month.
