VERC Enterprises, a convenience store and Gulf gasoline operator with locations throughout Massachusetts, has completed extensive renovations of its Kingston location, which has now re-opened for business.
“We believe people will really like our new and improved store,” said VERC Enterprises CEO Leo Vercollone, who noted that the five-month project has resulted in a storefront that has increased from 1,800 square feet to 3,800. The popular store, located at 183 Summer Street (Route 3A) near the Exit 10 interchange off Route 3, was one of VERC’s first stores, built 34 years ago. The company has invested more than $1 million in the improvements, which included tearing down the original building and constructing an all-new, state-of-the-art store.
Visitors will notice the addition of 10 parking spaces in front of the store; previously, all the parking was on the sides of the lot. Additionally, the Dunkin’ Donuts space inside has tripled, there are newly-renovated customer restrooms and a more spacious look and feel to the store. “We can now offer much more inventory,” said Vercollone, who added, “We have a great selection and can offer a convenient and fun shopping experience for our customers.”
Vercollone said that they will host an Open House to show the new storefront to the community, probably in the fall, but assures people that they are back in business and up and running. “We are looking forward to seeing our Kingston customers again and showing our new building.” As the company continues to expand, they now have locations along all the key Kingston-Plymouth interchanges, including Kingston (Exit 10), Pembroke (Exit 12), and Plymouth (Exit 7).
