Sutphin Petroleum, East Highway 50 in Lamar, celebrated its Grand Opening this past Friday, August 17, with a ribbon cutting with employees and Lamar Chamber of Commerce members on hand.

John Sutphin Jr. purchased the former Southeast Coop property earlier this year and has been converting the operation into a C Store with various agriculture related sales and services.

Sutphin said bulk fuel deliveries to the farming community are planned, as well as propane sales.  The new business operation will employ six persons while his combined operation is up to 25.  “We have a lease agreement with Cargill to weigh and roll various grains and we can also custom bag for livestock operations or even mix bird feed,” he said.  “We’ve cleared land just east of the building for hay sales which will be held the last Saturday of each month and we’re going with Civis Auctioners for a quarter-year consignment auction.  Folks can bring in their equipment or other items to sell off,” he explained.  Sutphin said the hay sale is flexible to allow for anyone’s requirements, one bale or several.
