Providence, RI (12.15.2022) – Rusty Lantern Market held an official ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of its new store in Providence, RI. Located at 38 Pleasant Valley Parkway, this is the 23rd of 25 stores in the convenience store roster.

“We are very excited to now be part of the Providence community,” said Manager and CEO, John Koch. “Expanding our Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts footprint into Rhode Island not only further establishes our brand, but, hopefully, demonstrates our commitment to being an exceptional go-to resource for fuel, great food, drinks, and convenience items. We take our service to the community in this way very seriously.”

“Rusty Lantern Market is dedicated to changing peoples’ perception of what to expect from a convenience store. We focus on providing clean, bright, and exceptionally well-tended facilities. Whether it’s Made to Order or Grab n Go, our food is super fresh and made on site. We’ve curated an impressive assortment of hot and cold beverages – including barista, freshly ground coffee, juices, teas, and frozen drinks. Our local and craft product offerings are carefully selected by discerning category managers. Fuel is of the highest quality and some locations, like this one, include EV charging stations. And maybe the best part, it’s all delivered to the customer by our friendly team. Our stores are very welcoming, and we’re excited to get to know our new neighbors as we share that experience with them.”

Ceremony guests included Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza, members of the Greater Providence Chamber of Commerce, the site development team, product vendor representatives and representatives from the Rusty Lantern Market team.



Based in Brunswick, ME, Rusty Lantern Market now operates 25 convenience stores and branded fueling stations in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. It is a privately held company, formed in 2015 by John Koch, Manager and CEO.
