The times are a-changin’ – at least on Sunday at the Farmer’s Union Cenex gas station in Baker.

The station has announced that it will be closing earlier on Sunday evenings.

The station is open from 4:45 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 5:45 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Saturdays.

However, the station will now be closing its convenience store at 8 p.m. on Sundays.

According to Tonya England, the assistant general manager at the station, the hours were reduced because of a drop off in business recently.

“We cut back an hour. With the pipeline crew not here we are just not busy. Nobody’s coming in,” she said.

“The pumps won’t be shut down,” England added.

The change in status with the pipeline has been the biggest hit for the station, according to England, although she admitted the recent 10-day stretch of sub-zero weather may have also had an impact. She also said that when the business increases again, the hour will be added back on the schedule for Sunday evenings.
