Delta Sonic has closed on its $4.88 million purchase of the former Menne Nursery property in Amherst, and Menne has found a new home in Wheatfield.
Delta Sonic plans to build a car wash, gas station, oil change building, convenience store and drive-thru restaurant at 3100 Niagara Falls Blvd., just north of East Robinson Road. Delta Sonic this week bought three parcels totaling 8.8 acres from Menne, which had operated on the site for 78 years. The company also paid a neighbor $225,000 for less than 1 acre last fall.
The Town Board in December rezoned the property to make way for the project.
Co-owner Gary Sokolowski said Menne on Dec. 31 moved into a new location at 2934 Niagara Falls Blvd. in Wheatfield. Menne Garden Artistry will continue to provide landscaping and Christmas decorating services, but will no longer have a retail operation.
