    Pump-n-Pantry Helps Kick Off Trout Fishing Season

    All 17 c-stores will offer free hot drinks to licensed anglers on April 12.

    MONTROSE, Pa. -- Pump-n-Pantry is hoping to reel in customers with the start of the trout fishing season in Pennsylvania.

    On April 12, the opening day of the state's trout fishing season, the 17 Pump-n-Pantry locations in northern Pennsylvania -- including four CITGO-branded stations -- will offer free fresh-brewed coffee, hot chocolate or cappuccino to each customer who visits the store and displays an official 2014 Pennsylvania fishing license.

    The retailer is teaming up with the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission (PFBC) on this promotion.

    "In April, it's still cold in Pennsylvania, but you'll see people shoulder to shoulder in the streams where we operate, chasing the first trout of the season," said Pump-n-Pantry President Scott Quigg. "This is the first time the PFBC has approached us about this type of promotion and we were excited to help kick off the season."

    In addition to a free hot beverage in exchange for proof of a valid Pennsylvania state fishing license, all eligible customers at the four participating Pump-n-Pantry CITGO stations will be entered for a chance to win one of 200 $5 CITGO gift cards. To enter, consumers can visit any of the following locations:

    • Pump-n-Pantry CITGO at 82 South Main St., Mansfield, Pa.
    • Pump-n-Pantry CITGO at 1 North Main St., Tioga, Pa.
    • Pump-n-Pantry CITGO at 9076 Rt. 414, Canton, Pa.
    • Pump-n-Pantry CITGO at 2 Springbrook Drive, Canton, Pa.

    "With support from CITGO, we're able to offer opportunities for trout anglers to win free fuel during a time when fuel costs are a concern," said Quigg. "Anglers are a big part of our customer base. We're glad to be able to give back to our most loyal patrons and help keep them warm out in those cold waters."
