September has been a BUSY month for our construction team.
In early September, Stewart’s Shops officially purchased the Blueox Neighborhood Market convenience store chain based in Central New York. These stores are located in Fort Plain, Bridgewater, Mt. Upton, Norwich, Oxford, and Hamilton. Not only have we rebranded these six Blueox stores to Stewart’s Shops, but we are opening three newly rebuilt shops.
We recently opened new shops in Rexford and Ballston Spa; our new shop in Barneveld, NY will be opening by the end of the month. We have transitioned 6 of the newly acquired Blueox stores into new Stewart’s Shops. One will be a Stewart’s Express Shop and the remaining five will be Stewart’s Shops. This asset acquisition of the Blueox stores allowed us to increase our footprint further into central New York.
Our newly rebuilt Stewart’s Shops in Ballston Spa and Rexford have a larger footprint and offer additional parking. There are more gas fueling stations, more parking and more outdoor seating. Inside the stores received massive changes including indoor seating, a beer cave, expanded food bar and expanded grocery sections at each location. The expanded food bar means there is more room for us to stock your favorites like mac & cheese, meatballs, chili, and soups. The extra room also allows each of the new shops to carry pizza as well, you can get a slice or order a whole pie for dinner!
Our construction team is currently working on seven remodels and seven rebuilds to round out 2021.
Here We Grow Again!
