Late Tuesday, Parkland Fuel Corporation announced the construction of a new On the Run store with an Ultramar service station in St. Stephen located at the intersection of Road 3 and St. Stephen Drive.

In a press release, the company stated construction will begin in spring 2019, to be completed in summer of 2019.

“We are thrilled with the construction of a new On the Run Store in St. Stephen. The services offered, the diversity of products available and the economic impact will all be a boon to the area.” said Mario Sauvé, Regional Vice-President, Parkland Fuel Corporation, Inc.

“Parkland Fuel Corporation is always looking for opportunities to better serve our customers and contribute to the development of the communities where we operate. We’re proud to be expanding in New Brunswick with the first On the Run store in Atlantic Canada.”
