GEORGETOWN – The Greater Georgetown Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon cutting at the Country Corners Market, located at 22168 Dupont Boulevard in Georgetown.

The event celebrated the grand re-opening of the market after having been closed for several months during extensive renovations.

Most recently renovated in the late 90’s, the Country Corners Market’s owners felt the building needed to be updated and, after pulling back a few layers, decided that a full renovation was in order.

“After about a year of planning and site work we were very excited to unveil the outcome,” said Operations Manager Lori Baker Vieira, “As a small convenience store chain it’s important to maintain business with what keeps them coming back through the doors.”

In addition to fuel pumps and basic convenience store fare, the nine Country Corners Markets that can be found throughout southern Delaware have built a solid reputation through their offerings of burgers, cheesesteaks, subs, homemade salads & cakes, and (as of last year) the famous Chicken Man fried chicken.

To update the look and feel of the newly renovated Georgetown Country Corners Market, more parking has been added as well as ordering kiosks, Delaware State Lottery and expanded restroom facilities.

“We are extremely pleased with the turnout for business so far and humbled from the amount of community support,” Ms. Baker Vieira said. “Georgetown has been very loyal to us through the years and we truly appreciate being a ‘go-to’ spot for the locals.”
