OHSWEKEN — An icon along Chiefswood Road and an anchor to the downtown Ohsweken business section, The Red Indian, has undergone a total make over under new manager, Morgan Green and is reopening under the new banner, “Gas, Grub and Goodies”.

“I retired, but I got bored being retired,” says Green. He used to own the Oasis Gas and Variety, but retired and passed that business over to his wife and son. “I was just sitting’ around and when the opportunity came up, I said, ‘what the hell, I might as well.’”

The first thing was to modernize the interior of the store itself. For so many years, as the Red Indian, it had the look and feel of an old-time rural grocer and convenience store inside. It will still serve the same needs of the community, but will be a more modern  atmosphere for his customers.

“The gas pumps were new, so that was a bonus,” says Green.

Even though Green says the project is behind schedule, the Grand Opening will still take place this Friday, November 2nd.

“I’m putting in a sandwich and sub shop on site for the new year as well, serving up brown bag lunches,” he says.

Green has a three year lease on the building but hopes to be successful enough to extend that lease when the time comes.
