Roblin Boulevard 7
The site of the old Charleswood Hotel. Co-Op Gas.
I should have taken pictures of the hotel as it was being taken down. The Charleswood Hotel was a long time landmark for Charleswood. The site is now occupied by a multi-pump Co-Op Gas station and store with car wash in back.
I was a bit dubious about so many pumps given that they only had a kiosk serving their needs down the street (since closed). However, it is busy every time I drive past. I have not used the store there yet but intend to take a look at some point. The lot is a quite big and extends back further from the road than you think.
