MADISON -— Residents will be able to grab a quick breakfast or a cup of coffee at the newly renovated Cumberland Farms by mid-December.
The store, at 633 Boston Post Road, was closed Oct. 25 so the underground gas tanks could be replaced to prevent leakage. The renovation time allowed for modernization of the store.
“Underground gasoline tanks do have to be changed out every so many years, and I think it’s nice that they’re taking the opportunity to refurbish the inside of the store,” said First Selectman Fillmore McPherson. “It will be a nice upgrade in the downtown area.”
Kate Ngo, store marketing manager, said there is no exact date for the reopening because it is “always a moving target.”
The store got a makeover inside and out and will reopen with a new design. Its legacy blue and orange branding has morphed into a blue and green logo.
“A lot of things have changed,” said Ngo. “We have an expanded menu: a new pizza and hot food program, a milkshake machine and fresh pastries. The interior itself is upgraded, too. We have more space where customers can get in and out easily and visibility across the store so it doesn’t look cluttered with products.”
The modernization idea began in 2008, when the company opened a store in Farmington to test the new look.
