Tour: Stauffers of Kissel Hill - Lititz, PA

Image
Stauffers of Kissel Hill's Lititz location, located at 1050 Lititz Pike in Lititz, Pennsylvania was previously located at 813 Lititz Pike, where it opened in 1937 (the original building is now the Stauffers Corporate Offices). The current store opened in 1985. By this point, it's basically the same as the Rohrerstown store, although it lacks things like a pharmacy and self-checkout registers that the newer Rohrerstown store features. One of the store's unique price tags. Despite the fact that there are only three Stauffers locations, everything is unique enough to the point where it feels like a large chain.  The original Lititz location, while in operation (From Stauffers Website) The original location, now used as corporate offices (Google Maps Streetview) This location when it first opened in 1985 (From Stauffers Website) Quick Information:  Opened: 1937 / 1985 Address: 1050 Lititz Pike Photographed: February 2021
