Special features: A team of framers could be seen in early July on West Republic Road near Kansas Expressway, assembling the skeleton of a Break Time gas station. Meanwhile, subcontractors from Emery Sapp & Sons Inc. were moving earth and working in a utility hole in front of the store. A representative of civil and structural engineer Crockett Engineering Consultants, which has had a hand in erecting many of the 70-plus Break Time stores throughout the Show-Me State, said the Republic Road location will be a standard gas and convenience store for the Columbia-based company. It also operates a location at the corner of Grand Street and National Avenue. Features include in-house brand Roaster’s Cafe coffee and cappuccino, as well as packaged foods and fountain drinks. Pumps will carry gas from MFA Oil Co., which founded Break Time in 1981, according to the MFA Oil website.
