FAIRBANKS, Alaska - Though it has been open for several weeks, the Farmers Loop Sourdough Fuel held its official grand re-opening and ribbon cutting yesterday.
The community was invited to celebrate this event, which kicked off a little after 10 A-M.
In attendance was Mayor Matherly, as well as the Nanook Mascot.
North Pole Coffee Roasters kept everything nice and toasty with fresh brewed coffee, and even some donuts.
Mayor Matherly talked about how happy he was to have the store open, and acknowledged its history of being one of the busier stations.
It is unknown at this time if any other stations will receive a similar upgrade.
Vice President of Sales and Communications, Don Castle, talked about how it feels to finally have this project completed and officially open for business.
Don Castle; Vice President of Sales and Communications>> Wonderful, glad the project is behind us. We did it all pretty much in house, with the subs, Builders Choice, a couple of the other Arctic Slope Regional Corporation subs, so we think everything came out really well. Everybody we have talked to, customers through the store, have been very pleased and we are very pleased as well. So I think it is a great upgrade for the community. The customers, the employees, everyone seems to be very happy with the outcome."
