YORK, Pa.--After nearly a 20-year absence, Rutter’s Farm Stores will return to Shippensburg, Pa. with a 5,200-square-foot convenience store. Construction will begin Monday May 1 and is expected to be completed by Labor Day.
“Shippensburg is an important part of Rutter’s history,” said Scott Hartman, president of Rutter’s Farm Stores. “It’s a growing and vibrant market anchored by a great university, and we can’t wait to return with a state-of-the-art store.”
Rutter’s operated a smaller store from 1980 to 1989 at Walnut Bottom Road and Route 11. The new store in Shippensburg will represent the most current in Rutter’s store design, with entrances and gas pumps on two sides. Sixteen fueling positions will dispense gasoline, diesel and kerosene under a canopy.
Inside, the store will offer Rutter’s proprietary Famous Express Deli and Famous Express Grill, an L-shaped food-service island with upscale self-serve coffee at one end, seating for 12 to 16 people, and a no-surcharge M&T Bank ATM.
The store, which will have approximately 25 employees, will be managed by Bobbie Weyant.
Shippensburg will be the third new Rutter’s in 2006. In March, Rutter’s opened new stores in Fawn Grove and New Freedom, York County.
York, Pa.-based Rutter’s Farm Stores operates 50 convenience stores in York, Adams, Franklin and Lancaster counties.
