Rutter's relaunches Hellam location
Within a span of 24 hours, Rutter's closed a store in Hellam that stood for almost 40 years and opened a new store designed to better accommodate 21st-century consumers.
The original 2,300-square-foot store was built in 1979. It closed on Feb. 19.
The new building, which opened on Feb. 20, is located right behind it at 700 W. Market St.
The new store has more fuel pumps, a quick-service restaurant, beer and wine, and seating for up to 30 patrons inside, according to a news release.
“We are excited to bring a fresh look to our store in Hellam,” said Scott Hartman, president and CEO of Manchester Township-based Rutter’s.
The new building features 14 fueling positions and will offer new options such as flex fuel, unleaded 15 and ethanol-free fuel.
The location will employ 50 people and operate 24 hours a day.
Rutter’s operates 73 convenience stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia.
