Following a fire, the Cumberland Farms c-store prepares to welcome back customers.
Cumberland Farms is reopening its c-store on Main Street in Harwich Port, Mass.-based, after the store burned down on June 28.
Cumberland Farms Marketing Manager Kate Ngo told the Cape Cod Times that the chain plans to reopen its Harwich Port store this Friday, albeit with a limited array of products compared to before. “The offerings will be scaled back, but we will offer basic convenience store goods like fountain drinks,” Ngo said.
In the early morning hours of June 28, a store employee discovered the store ablaze and called the fire department. A 15-year-old boy has been charged with arson in the case.
The reopening is good news for local residents who work nearby and frequent the c-store often. “On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we work 12-hour days and go over to Cumby’s multiple times,” said Sarah Hunt, manager of Heather’s Hairport Salon and Spa, which is located across the street from the c-store. “I heard a rumor that it’s reopening. I even posted something about it on Facebook,” she told the paper.
Cumberland Farms has almost 600 stores in 11 states, and employs over 6,000 people.
