YORK, Pa.—Rutter’s, a privately-held convenience chain, has opened the first c-store room for Video Gaming Terminals (VGTs) in Pennsylvania at a popular York County store.
Working with Marquee by Penn, a subsidiary of Penn National Gaming Inc., Rutter’s plans to open three more VGT rooms in the coming month for a total of 10-plus by year end. More are scheduled for 2020. The move comes as Rutter’s continues to use innovative methods to cater to consumers’ needs.
Locations licensed for VGTs will provide customers, 21 years of age and older, with five machines in a designated VGT room. Customers also will be able to enjoy Rutter’s award-winning food and beverages while playing.
“Rutter’s has evolved as a business over the years, from a dairy to convenience stores, from smokes and cokes to fuel and food service,” said Scott Hartman, Rutter’s president and CEO. “We are constantly listening and learning from our customers, and VGTs are one example of our progressive model.”
“We are excited to partner with Rutter’s and combine our expertise with their established success in the convenience store industry,” said Jeff Morris, vice president of public affairs for Penn National Gaming.
