Stewart's opens Rouses Point, N.Y., location

ROUSES POINT, N.Y. -- Stewart's Shops opened its 324th convenience store/gas station with a grand opening event last Saturday. The shop is located in Rouses Point, New York.

The event featured a variety of specials for customers, including 50-cent coffee, deli dogs, ice cream cones, and Stewart's sodas and drinks. In addition, the station offered a 10-cent discount per gallon on all grades of gasoline from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm, and a "Buy 1 Get 1 Free" special on New York Lotto.

It also featured an ice cream eating contest, with [image-nocss] a year's supply of Stewart's Ice Cream as the prize. "Buy 1, Get 1 Free" specials were also be available on Stewart's half gallon ice cream, half gallon or gallon milk, half gallon orange juice, two-liter soda, bread, hot dog and hamburger rolls and English muffins.

Stewart's donates approximately 5% of its annual profits to charity, it said. That equates to approximately $2,000,000 for 2007. As a continued part of this commitment, all "Buy 1, Get 1 Free" Stewart's product purchases are being matched with a shared contribution to North Country Cougars Hockey and Rouses Fire Department.

The new Stewart's Shop will operate from 5:00 am to 12:00 am under the guidance of manager Shawn Mulvaney and district manager Jeff Manley.

The shop will feature the many Stewart's private-label products, including its locally produced milk and ice cream, as well as traditional convenience items such as coffee, food to go, groceries and gasoline.
