FAYETTEVILLE, Pa. -- A new 5,500-square-foot Rutter's Farm Store is rising in town and with it will come 40 new jobs.
The new convenience store is location at U.S. 30 and Pa. 987. Construction began in November and contractors have entered the final phase of work, according to the Chambersburg Public Opinion. Rutter's has smaller stores in the area, including one at 4030 Lincoln Way East in Fayetteville; however, the new location will be on par with the South Main Street store in Chambersburg that opened in 2008.
The new store will have eight gas pumps, a dedicated diesel fueling facility behind the store for tractor trailers and a two-bay automatic car wash. Four of the right pumps will offer diesel fuel, the news outlet added.
Inside, the Rutter's Farm Store will feature a restaurant -- with menu selections that include stir fry dishes, and fresh baked sub and ciabatta rolls -- with touch-screen ordering. It will also boast seven televisions, restaurant seating for 11, a premium coffee island and public rest rooms.
The new location was designed with environmentally friendly elements, including a white reflective roof, triple-glazed windows, LED lighting, skylights, extra insulation, and water reclamation systems in the car wash. In addition to going green, Rutter's also went local: many of the building materials were manufactured or harvested within 500 miles of the store.
While company executives expect the 24-hour store to open at the end of April or early May; the ribbon cutting ceremony has been slated for 11 a.m. on May 10.
