Stewart’s Shops has opened a new shop in on Ridge Street in Glens Falls, a project delayed by the coronavirus situation.
The company razed the former Time Warner building at that site and built a 3,850-square-foot store with a three-pump gasoline canopy, which has six fueling stations. People can also get diesel and non-ethanol gas for a boat or lawn mower.
Company officials said due to COVID-19, the project was put on a brief pause, but we are happy to report it is now open.
Although there is no inside seating allowed for the time being, when dining is permitted again, the new shop will feature 4.5 booths for lots of seating and two bathrooms with an expanded layout and additional parking and outside seating.
There is a beverage bar and a “beer cave” where people can enter cold storage and find a beer of their choice.
Like other shops, it features pizza, breakfast sandwiches, salads, and plenty of snacks and beverages. Through June 28, there’s $1 off all half-gallons of ice cream. There are other store specials through the month.
“Although our aggressive construction has been slowed down, we are happy to keep business going and we’re certainly keeping our contractors busy with plenty of new Stewart’s Shops and remodels throughout New York state,” the company said.
Stewart’s is also planning to go ahead with plans for an excavation of a 60,000-square-foot expansion of a warehouse, dairy, and bottling plant in Greenfield. The project is planned to begin in June, tripling the size of their commercial kitchen, with additional cooler and dry good storage space, according to the company.
Stewart’s Shops employs over 4,500 people and operates over 335 shops across New York and southern Vermont. Its rich, nearly 75-year history and success stems from its vertical integration, employee ownership and strong company values.
