Welcome To Thorntons Home Of The Hot Dog Bar and Low Gas Prices.

One year ago Thorntons Gasoline opened at Hillsborough Ave, and George Road offering gasoline at one penny lower than the area gas stations. That one penny along with free coffee and fountain drinks and two for one hot dogs for thirty days and infectious smiles earned Thorntons some loyal customers. One year later, those loyal customers are being rewarded with a rewards card which will allow them to save ten cents per gallon at the tank for thirty days. After the thirty days, they will save three cents per gallon.

Thorntons gas price at this writing is $3.25 per gallon. The customers who sign up for the rewards card is paying $3.15 per gallon. Needless to say, Thorntons is the cheapest gas in town and has been the cheapest gas in town for over one year. They set tone in pricing. When they drop their prices the competitors follow suit. Of course that’s what the Anti-Trust Act intended. Thorntons who are opening up more stores in Florida has been good for the Tampa Bay economy.

They still have most of their staff they opened with last year including the manager Roland Bauer. The staff continues to greet the customers with infectious smiles.

Thornston is not only known for the cheapest gas in town but for what customers now call the Hot Dog Bar. Move over Nathans, there’s new Hot Dog King in town.

If you haven’t made the journey to a Thorntons you might want to do it soon to sign up for their rewards card and take advantage of their low gas prices. While you signing up drop by the hot dog bar and take some hot dogs home with you.
