RIPLEY, NY ( Dunkirk Observer ) A gasoline fill-up will now require a little longer trip for residents in the Chautauqua county town of Ripley.

The Ripley Country Fair closed its doors for good on Sunday. The Country Fair is the town's only gas station but the owner says the store was not earning enough profit.

Ripley Town Supervisor Pete Ryan says the Town is hoping to find someone else to take over the store.
