Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Divani Chocolatier & Core Goods

Two of our members—Divani Chocolatier in Foxburg and Core Goods in Oil City—are working together this Valentine’s Day. On Sunday, February 10, from 12 to 3 p.m. at Core Goods, you can enjoy samples of chocolate covered strawberries from Divani, and place an order for strawberries that will be made fresh and delivered on February 14.

For people unable to attend on the 10th, Core Goods will have forms available leading up to the event, so chocolate covered strawberries can still be ordered.

In December, Core Goods started selling “Bliss Bites” from Divani, which are dark chocolate bites  filled with organic nuts.

Member Spotlight: Ocean Spray Car Wash

Best Car Wash & Gas Prices in Town

Ocean SprayDowntown Oil City is now the home of a new car wash and gas station. Ocean Spray Car Wash opened its doors on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, with an official ribbon cutting on November 13.

Ocean Spray has a state-of-the-art LaserWash 360 Plus car wash system, including four different touchless wash cycles, providing service as close to a hands-on detailing as possible. On site, customers also have access to two vacuums, and radiant floor heat, preventing snow from building up on the premises.

In addition to the car wash, the business has a pay-at-the-pump gas station, with all brand new equipment—tankage, lines, and dispensers. The gas station offers the best prices in town, with an option for even more discounts through bundling. If a customer purchases gas the same time as a car wash, there’s an opportunity to get up to $0.20 more off per gallon.

Although Ocean Spray Car Wash is a new business, it was opened by Daniel L. Heath, owner of Heath Oil, Inc., a longstanding local business. Since 1970, Heath Oil has served our area, starting at its Victory Heights location on Route 322 in Franklin. The business has evolved from a single station to a large wholesale enterprise, with multiple retail sites and bulk facilities throughout the region.

“Venango County has been a great place to live and run a business, and working hard to benefit this rural area has been rewarding,” said Daniel. “The car wash is just another way to continue providing services here. We are happy to provide Oil City with a great car wash without having to travel out of the community.”

Whether you’re looking for convenience, top of the line service, competitive prices, or all three benefits, stop by the new Ocean Spray Car Wash in Oil City!
