US Rep Guinta to visit, volunteer at Portsmouth convenience store Wednesday afternoon


Unique Event Offers Firsthand Community Experience at Local Convenience Store


WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta (NH-01) announced today that he will visit a Cumberland Farms store in Portsmouth to work behind the counter, speak with employees, interact with members of the local community and discuss issues of importance to the store, patrons and community.


“Small businesses are the backbone of New Hampshire’s economy - in fact, nearly 96% of our employers are classified as small businesses.  It is essential to continue to grow our small businesses to provide Granite Staters with steady, good-paying jobs while also strengthening and contributing to our local economy.  Convenience stores, like Cumberland Farms, provide essential services to individuals and families with one-stop shopping, grab-and-go food service, a variety of merchandise and fast transactions.  I’m excited to visit this store, speak with patrons and witness firsthand the various benefits convenience stores provide to the residents of Portsmouth.”


The event will be held Wednesday, April 8, 2015 at the Cumberland Farms Store located at 1475 Lafayette Road, Portsmouth, NH 03801 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM.  Members of the press are invited to attend.
