CHITTENANGO>> For the first time in a decade, the Oneida Indian Nation is opening a new SavOn store location.
It’s located at 603 Genesee St. in Chittenango.
“Opening our first SavOn store in Chittenango is an exciting time for us and the response from the community has been overwhelming,” said Sean Brown, Director of SavOn Operations in a press release. “Guests can expect to receive our unparalleled level of guest service, competitively priced fuel and cigarettes, and fun, engaging promotions.”
According to the release, the new 2,000 square-foot store will feature a wider selection of cigarette brands, Green Mountain Coffee and a Stone Hearth Express, which offers grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, and pizzas.
SavOn Chittenango will offer a variety of imported and domestic beer, including a large selection of craft brews including Southern Tier, Lagunitas, 21st Amendment, and Dogfish Head and daily fuel promotions.
Village Administrator Bob Freunscht said that the tribe has owned that piece of property for over a decade, and that the location changed from a Sunoco to a SavOn overnight two weeks ago.
The new location will have a grand opening Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. hosted by Big Frog 104 DJs.
