Caltex have decided to keep their fuel station open in Mount Isa - but it will be unstaffed.
Last week Caltex Australia announced it was closing the fuel station on the corner of Grace and Camooweal streets on October 30 with two local staff who have worked at the business for a combined 50 years, made redundant after the closure.
However now Caltex have changed their mind and made the decision to continue operation of the forecourt - though the staff and shop will still go.
This means that after October 30 the forecourt will operate as an unstaffed self-serve fuel station 24 hours a day - much like how it operates currently from 7pm to 7am.
A Caltex spokesperson said they were closing the shop at its Mount Isa site due to low shop sales.
"Following the shop closure at the end of October, the forecourt will remain operational as an unstaffed self-serve fuel station 24 hours a day, which is how the site currently operates from 7pm to 7am," the spokesperson said.
"Customers will able to fill up using their StarCard or available EFTPOS machines at the outdoor payment terminal."
The other Caltex Fuel Station on the corner of Miles and Grace streets, owned by EG Group, will remain open and unaffected.
