NORTHFIELD, Ohio – The Rock Stop Gas & Car Wash opened this week in Northfield, Ohio, with six gas pumps and a more than 3,600-square-foot car wash, Cleveland.com reports. Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park developed the site.

Mark Birtha, president of Rocksino, which is owned by Milstein Entertainment and Hard Rock International, said that two other gas stations with car washes will open at other Hard Rock locations. “We thought people would enjoy a clean car,” he said. “And on the flip side, who doesn't need gas? It's an easy opportunity to reinvest and add jobs.”

The fuel pumps have LED TV screens too. The car wash will offer half price washes during “Car Wash Happy Hour” from 2 pm to 5 pm each day through the end of October. 

Inside, the convenience store sells Hard Rock merchandise, and a Pepsi Spire digital fountain serves more than 180 flavor combinations, as well as Hard Rock-flavored slushes. Rocksino loyalty card holders can receive discounts at the pump of 5, 7 or 10 cents off per gallon. The station is next the expanded Rocksino gambling area that also has a 24/7 bistro onsite.
