Stewart’s Shops is making a significant investment in Rensselaer County with the construction of over a half dozen shops, including a brand new location in North Greenbush near Hudson Valley Community College that is set to open this Wednesday, November 18.
Stewart’s Shops recognizes that people’s eating habits are changing. They’re busy and eating smaller meals, more often. An increased focus is being placed on the variety of Easy Food options like prepared foods, entrees, sandwiches, snacks, and beverages.
With that trend in mind, the company has recently built replacement shops for their locations at 184 Main Avenue in Wynantskill and 100 Northern Drive in Troy (Oakwood), and has another rebuild underway for their shop on Albany Avenue in Nassau which is expected to be completed in late December. In 2014, Stewart’s Shops also rebuilt their locations on 112th Street in Lansingburgh, Columbia Turnpike in East Greenbush, and on Brick Church Road in Cropseyville.
The new shop in North Greenbush, which will be the company’s 332nd store, is located at 50 North Greenbush Road. It will offer the traditional Stewart’s ice cream, dairy, grocery and convenience items. The spacious layout also includes a large variety hot food options, including freshly made pizza, pie and by the slice. The shop will also offer made-to-order subs, a walk-in cooler called a beer cave, plus plenty of seating and a large gas island with ethanol-free premium gasoline.
By the end of 2015, Stewart’s Shops will have opened two brand new stores, completed 10 replacement shops, along with dozens of additions and remodels across its market areas.
Specials on Stewart’s products and fuel will be offered during each Grand Opening event. The schedule is as follows:
