A new eatery, convenience store, and gas station is getting ready to open early next week in southern Butler County.
The American Natural Cranberry Grand Opening is scheduled for Monday at 8:30 a.m. at the corner of Route 19 and Freeport Road in Mars.
This event will include a breaking-bread ceremony presided over by Mars Mayor Gregg Hartung as well as a performance by the Mars High School Marching Band. Anyone who visits will be able to participate in a raffle to win lots of great prizes.
The first 25 customers to enter the store will receive an American Natural gym bag filled with a reusable coffee mug and signature snack items. All those stopping by will be treated to free breakfast tastings along with coffee, lattes, and tea until 11 a.m. then free samples from local vendors until 6 p.m.
