According to a BaKehilla report, the Sonol gas station chain in Israel is the first in the field that is taking a major step towards finding favor in the eyes of the chareidi tzibur. The report states close to forty stations nationwide are closed on Shabbos, and the convenience stores located in the stations are carrying many products with a mehadrin hashgacha.
As its efforts to bring in additional chareidi clients, the gas station is offering a deal in its shomer Shabbos stations, and anyone filling up on Thursday and Friday will receive a copy of the weekly BaKehilla for 4.99 NIS instead of 16.90 NIS.
The sale began after Pesach, and it offered in the Rimonim station in Bnei Brak, in Har Nof (Yerushalayim), at the entrance to the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv Hwy. in Jerusalem, the Ramot Road (Yerushalayim), Kfar Chassidim, Netivot and other areas.
