In August 2013, Rutter’s opened a new store in Lancaster County,
Pennsylvania, in the heart of Amish country. The first customer was
James Strickler, whose family once owned the land the new store
“On the land where the store sits now, there was a huge oak tree
that my father passed by on a horse-drawn plow. He felt refreshed by
the shade of the oak and I hope every customer who visits Rutter’s
will be similarly refreshed,” said Strickler.
