YORK, Pa. -- While its address hasn’t changed, the new Rutter’s Farm Stores convenience store in Wrightsville, Pa., is far from the store that formerly held that location.
Family-owned Rutter’s razed and rebuilt the store at 201 Cool Springs Road, which now features the chain's latest store design. The new location is 5,125 square feet, nearly 80 percent larger than the old one. It boasts 18 fueling positions in front and diesel pumps in the back, the company stated. The store also saw the addition of a two-bay automatic car wash.
Rutter’s hired 29 additional employees to staff the store, for a total of 40. The project had a price tag of more than $4 million.
"We appreciate the loyalty and patience of our Wrightsville customers during this construction project," Scott Hartman, president and CEO of Rutter’s Farm Stores, said in a statement. "We are proud that we have created both construction jobs and new full-time employment opportunities during these difficult economic times. It is all made possible by our loyal local customer base."
The 24-hour store also boasts Rutter’s latest food service offerings, including stir-fry, fajitas and fresh-baked bread. Customers can design "oriental bowls" and create custom steak, chicken and veggie fajitas. Fresh-baked sub and cibatta rolls are provided for sandwiches or individual retail purchase, the company stated.
In addition, the new Rutter's store is home to a premium-coffee island, touch-screen ordering, seating for 12, "best in industry" restrooms and a surcharge-free M&T Bank ATM.
Its store design features open ceilings, floor and wall tiles, and bathrooms with floating ceilings, music and other upscale accents, the company stated.
Green building elements include a white roof to keep the building cooler while reducing energy demand, along with recycling containers that accept plastic, glass and newsprint.
