The new Royal Farms location on Route 26 in Ocean View will open for business next week. The 24-hour gas and convenience store will have its soft opening at midnight on Tuesday, July 14, with an official ribbon-cutting on July 17 at 10 a.m.
The store will have 24-hour gas pumps and a Redbox kiosk located outside of the store, as well as various food items inside, including the chain’s fried chicken.
Ocean View Mayor Walter Curran said the store is unique in that they minimize the cost of ribbon-cuttings and instead donate money to area charities.
“They have named eight of them, starting with Mariner’s Bethel Church. The top charity gets $1,000 and the others receive $500 each,” explained Curren. “They’re already a very good neighbor.”
The new Royal Farms is located at 58 Atlantic Avenue in Ocean View.
