On Tuesday, Ottumwa residents will have a new place to fill up at the pump.
Hy-Vee located at the intersection of Hwy 63 and N. Court St., will open its new gas station at 5:30 a.m. The Ottumwa North Hy-Vee's assistant director says the project started about six months ago, and they are looking forward to their grand opening. You will be able to pay-at-the-pump 24-hours a day, and the convenience store inside will be open until 11 p.m. each day.
â??It's something we're pretty excited about with our gas-saver program,â?? Jeff Stuchel said. â??We're hoping everyone's signed up for that. We're gonna have full service gas here coming up this week, so if you want a person here at the store to scrub your windows, they'll scrub your windows for you, pump your gas for you.â??
Hy-Vee employees also say they are looking forward for the new stoplight signals at the entry-way to start operating on Friday, which they believe will attract more customers.
