The sale of Walter’s Service Center in downtown Conway was finalized Friday to Phil and Diana Hawks Kirkland. Standing in front of the station are, from the left, former owner Virginia Walter, Dee Ann Walter Davis, who managed the station, and Ed Erbach, a 45-year employee of the business. Started 57 years ago by the late Martin Walter, the business will remain open as it is remodeled to become Central Station convenience store. The Kirklands said they will keep the station’s full-service amenities.
