ERIE, PA – Country Fair, Inc., Erie’s home-town convenience store chain, will open its 72nd store in Harborcreek on Buffalo Road in December of 2019.
“We recognize that the Buffalo Road corridor is vital to the economic vitality of Harborcreek,” said Paul Rankin, Vice President of Retail Marketing. The chain already has 2 stores in Harborcreek.
“We’re always trying to identify places in the community that could benefit from having a store,” Rankin added. “By repurposing this property, we can hire folks to renovate and rebuild, employ 30 more people right here in the neighborhood, and offer fresh, local products at a reasonable price.” Country Fair plans to apply for a license to sell beer and wine at the new location. They plan to keep their existing store at 4753 Buffalo Road open, as well.
With over 1300 employees across Pennsylvania, Ohio, and New York, Country Fair, Inc., was the only convenience store named to Forbes Best Midsize Employers 2019.
