After 2 years of design and research, Flagstop opened its first location in October of 1981 on Route 10 in Chester. It was a small convenience store with a 16 hose gas pumper, 80 foot automatic flex service car wash, and 6 bay self serve car wash with detailing. Since its inception, Flagstop has constantly strived to create new ways to better serve the customer. Over the last 28 years, Flagstop has grown to 6 locations serving hundreds of thousands of Valued Customers every year.
In 1987, Flagstop purchased a 10 acre parcel on Route 10 near Chesterfield Court House to build its first "mega" car care center. Bob Schrum (President) and Jamie Nester (Vice President) worked for two years to design, develop, and build the first “mega” car care location. This beautifully designed center has a 110 foot full service car wash, 2 bay detail center, 3 bay full service quick lube shop, 6 bays of self service washes with several vacuums, and a beautiful gift shop with a business center with a spacious (22’ ceiling) waiting area with fireplace.
Another similar location was built in 2004 in Colonial Heights, Virginia. In 2008 (after 2 years of research) Flagstop opened their newest type of car wash, a $5 Flagstop Express Wash with “Free Vacuums.” Customers receive a quality, gentle, fast, conveyorized car wash with all of the waxes, conditioners, undercarriage wash, wheel cleaning, tire dressing, spot free rinse and machined dried in less than 3 minutes from $5-13. Customers can also vacuum for free as long as they’d please to. This great car care concept fits everyone’s busy needs as well as their wallets and purses. Another “express wash” opened on Parham Road in the spring of 2009. In 2011 another location in the Food Lion Shopping Center in Chester was purchased and remodeled for a $5 Flagstop Express Wash
Flagstop has been proud to serve all of its valued customers in the Richmond/Tri-City area for the past 32 years and look forward to serving them for many years to come.
In 2011, Flagstop also purchased the original gas station and convenience store at 2500 W. Hundred Road and completely remodeled this, to tie their carwash and gas together for cross merchandising, save 20¢ a gallon with a carwash purchase or free wash after 5 fillups.
In April 2013, Flagstop opened its newest $5 Express Wash with 15 free vacuums at 705 Ashland Street in Hopewell, with the all new Fire & Ice-Turtle Wax Finish Protection System.

Leading with artistic excellence, the Richmond Symphony will inspire and unite the community through the power of live music.
The Richmond Symphony performs, teaches and champions music, to enrich and entertain communities throughout Virginia.
The Richmond Symphony was founded in 1957 by a small, dedicated group of music-lovers who desired to provide Central Virginia with a professional orchestra. The Symphony performed only three concerts in its inaugural season; today, the orchestra makes more than 200 public appearances each season. The Symphony employs 36 core (full-time) and more than 40 part-time musicians, performs for approximately 125,000 patrons each season, and reaches thousands more area residents through educational outreach programs and weekly radio broadcasts on WCVE-FM. As a nonprofit corporation, the Richmond Symphony is partially supported by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
What would become NBC12, signed on the air on Sunday, April 29, 1956 as WRVA-TV, a CBS affiliate. Over the years that followed, the station was affiliated with CBS, ABC and finally NBC. WWBT TV, NBC12’s history, and that of television in Richmond, is a story complete with corporate intrigue and government policy changes.
One of the men who lived it wrote it all down shortly before his death. “Roots to Satellites” is a history of TV in Richmond by Sanford Terry, the man who built what is now WWBT. From the corporate foot dragging that left WRVA third in the race, to the executive who felt the station should be built along the design of his “cow barn,” it’s a story NBC12 hopes even non-broadcasters will find fun to read.
