A street corner of Bellefonte has been rejuvenated, and the owner wants to celebrate.
Bellefonte Mart, a convenience store and gas station, opened in July off West Lamb Street across from the Gamble Mill, which will be bought by developers Shauna McClure and Gary Werkheiser.
Store owner Dolly Singh will host the grand opening Friday at 431 W. Lamb St. with a ribbon cutting at noon, light refreshments and a drawing for $40 gasoline credit. The event has been coordinated by the Bellefonte Intervalley Area Chamber of Commerce.
Singh said the convenience store, which replaced a Uni-Mart gutted by a June 2015 fire, would be good for the community.
“We’re extremely excited to be a part of Bellefonte,” Singh said.
The convenience store is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
