BURNT HILLS — Stewart’s Shops on Oct. 16 announced that it will be closing two of its shops in the upcoming weeks.
The Burnt Hills shop on 710 Saratoga Rd. will be closed on Sunday, Oct. 25 and the Wappingers Falls shop on 2048 Route 9D, will be closed on Sunday, Nov. 8. All partners have been offered opportunities in nearby locations, the company said.
Stewart’s Shops released the following statement regarding the closures: “Unfortunately, these shops do not have the ability to accommodate the equipment or space needs to expand food-to-go offerings or gasoline and cannot expand with their ever-growing customer needs. The inability to expand coupled with rising costs have made the closures necessary.”
The closures are not a reflection of the company overall, the company added, reporting: “Stewart’s Shops continues to grow. They’re expanding to new markets and rebuilding and improving existing locations where they are seeing growth. In 2020, Stewart’s Shops is celebrating 75 years and will again invest over $45 million in construction of new shops and shop additions, with 19 new and rebuilt shops planned.”
