Bankruptcy: C-Store in High Traffic, A+ Location, Moyock, NC

Don't miss this opportunity to own the best C-store location in Eastern North Carolina! Sale is for real estate only and NOT the Border Station, INC business or its assets; The Border Station, INC is a tenant.

Why a bankruptcy auction?
Sadly, in 2021 the founder longtime owner/operator of the Border Station passed away, triggering a technical default under the bank loan documents. Hastings and Hollowell, INC, which owns the real estate, was placed in Chapter 11 bankruptcy in order to protect it from foreclosure by this lender. THERE IS NOTHING DISTRESSED ABOUT THIS REAL ESTATE.

The Location and Opportunity:
While the Border Station real estate is located in Greater Hampton Roads, a 1.7 million+ population MSA, the true value of this location is the immense funnel effect caused by I-64, and the Chesapeake Expressway channeling 26,000 vehicles per day past this site.

Virtually anyone wishing to travel by car to the beaches of the world-renowned North Carolina Outer Banks (OBX) from north of the Property must drive by the Border Station to reach their destination. In fact, if a traveler departs Washington, DC via I-95 to vacation in the OBX, this C-store is the first place to stop for gas without having to take an exit. Features Include:
