FARGO-Sahr's Sudden Service, a gas station and auto repair shop that operated for about 45 years at 601 4th St. N. in Fargo, has closed for good.

Owner Ron Sahr cited retirement as the reason for the closure.

The move shouldn't come as a complete surprise. In 2014, the business announced it would no longer offer gasoline for sale, but mechanical repair work would continue.

Now that service, too, has ended.

Sahr said the property is being purchased, but he declined to say who the new owner is or how the property will be used.

Sahr said he will continue to operate another business, Red River Boarding, an animal kennel near Sabin, Minn.

The Sahr family has run that business for about 32 years.

Ron Sahr said he appreciates the support he received from his service station customers over the years.

"I'd like to thank everybody," he said.

I'm a reporter and a photographer and sometimes I create videos to go with my stories.

I graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead and in my time with The Forum I have covered a number of beats, from cops and courts to business and education.

I've also written about UFOs, ghosts, dinosaur bones and the planet Pluto.
