, the Center Street Sunoco was built in 1971 and was originally owned by Sun Oil Co. of Pennsylvania, which at one point in the 1970s operated 12 Sunoco stations in the Berkshires. In 1977, Sun Oil Co. sold all of its county stations except for Center Street Sunoco. The station added a towing service in 1980.
