Save Our Fillmore Neighborhood
If approved by the city of San Francisco, Shell Auto Repair will be bulldozed and replaced by a 3000+sf 24 hour chain convenience store (called Loop). More gas pumps will also be added. The Shell Auto Repair Shop at 2501 California Street has been servicing our community for over 80 years. We need this honest, small local business that really helps us & services our cars NOT a 7/11 with a salad bar.
Why should you be outraged?
- Mega convenience store belongs on freeway rest stop not Pacific Heights.
- 24 Hour super size convenience stores have shown to increase crime.
- More Gas Pumps+ Already Busy & Dangerous intersection= Safety Issue.
- Uptick in traffic but not likely increased business for local businesses.
- Loop chain store will undercut prices of other local business putting our local merchants at a disadvantage
All this diverts & blocks locals & customers from shopping & eating in Fillmore Street area. We need to keep services in our neighborhood.
We the undersigned demand this project be stopped Now!

Save Our Fillmore Neighborhood from the demolition of the Shell Auto Repair at 2501 California St . This is in reference to Project # 2013.1407. As neighbors and customers, we value the Shell Auto Repair service , and need to keep this honest necessary local service in our neighborhood.
The Loop chain store being proposed is neither Necessary Nor Desirable because the Loop services are already offered by many merchants throughout the neighborhood. Loop is a chain store that will undercut prices of our small local merchants & will put them at a disadvantage. The subject on NPR Forum July 10, 2014 was about San Francisco Formula Retail and the destruction of neighborhood character. We completely agree & are outraged that this project is even being considered. Loop chain store is trying to quietly sneak into our neighborhood. Not only is Loop chain store not necessary nor desired but it is also not wanted.
Please put the people of Pacific Heights & San Francisco ahead of outsiders trying to ruin our neighborhood character. Please put a stop to this proposed project now. Thank you.
