Sun Valley gets an AFD facelift

“I just decided it was time for a new look,” Jones explains, “and an upgrade in technology.”

Don’t worry, Sun Valley’s new look doesn’t mean a change in their philosophy or business model. Owner Sheila Jones remains intent on maintaining the same service people have come to expect from the station on the corner of Nelson Avenue and First Street.

“I just decided it was time for a new look,” Jones explains, “and an upgrade in technology.”

Changing from Sun Valley to the smaller family orientated company AFD Petroleum came with new pumps and a new canopy along with a new, simple decidedly yellow look. The business will remain full-service and free from Pay-at-the-Pump technology.

“I had the option (for pay-at-the-pump) but I opted out,” Jones reasons, “I like people. But the new pumps will have the option to switch over if I ever decide to sell and if the new owner wants to go that direction.”
