The sun was out Saturday and so were the well wishers and bargain hunters at the official grand opening of the all-new River Range Gas Bar at 3819 6th Line Road, Ohsweken.
Vintage cars, free giveaways including Ohsweken Speedway tickets, a barbeque and even bouncy castles and free balloons for the kids were a part of the day-long festivities celebrating the new gas bar and variety store.
“We are very pleased with the support from the community,” said manager Amy Henry on Tuesday afternoon. “It sure was busy and I’m still going.”
She said that the business has been brisk and steady all weekend.
The gas bar itself first opened Nov. 28th, but the Variety store element opened later.
“We didn’t want to do a Grand Opening in the winter,” Henry says. “So we waited for the good weather.”
The turnout was better than originally planned and co-owner Glenn Styres had to visit his Ohsweken Speedway concession for more burgers and buns at one point.
River Range Gas Bar is owned by Lesley and Greg Isaacs and Glenn Styres who wish to thank those who attended, and invite those who were unable to, to drop by and say hi.
