In a major development, the Gas-Station Shoe-and-Carrier Company is now opening a parking lot on the north side of the entrance to the Shilo gas station in the Old City.
The new location is located on the main road between the Shila and Jerusalem neighborhoods.
According to a news release issued by the company, the parking lot will be able to accommodate around 100 vehicles per hour, which will allow for the sale of gas and groceries at a lower price.
The Shilo store is a major source of revenue for the Gas Company of Israel.
The parking lot is expected to be operational within one to two weeks.
