    Stewart's Grand Opening - Chester

    While people were packing the new enlarged Chester Stewart’s Shop for its grand-opening celebration, area officials and community members gathered in front of the convenience store for a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Holding up the ends of the ribbon are (left side, left to right): Glens Falls YMCA’s Brian Bearor, state Assemblyman Dan Stec and U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik, and (left side) Chester town board member Karen DuRose — while store manager Vicky Tucker (center) prepares to cut the ribbon. Representatives of the North Warren Chamber of Commerce and the Tri-Lakes Community Alliance were also on hand.
