Cota & Cota moving its Brattleboro office

BRATTLEBORO -- A 72-year-old heating and plumbing company is getting a new local office at a vacated gas station on Putney Road and the owners hope to move in sometime this month.

Cota & Cota has operated out of 845 Putney Road for many years but construction is now being finished at 584 Putney Road, a former Shell gas station.

Deborah Satterfield, in charge of customer service at Cota & Cota, said the company is renting its current location but purchased the old Shell station at auction because the owners of Cota & Cota were looking for a new place to call home. She said an open house, catered by Fast Eddie’s Bakery, is expected to be held from Monday, Sept. 30, to Wednesday, Oct. 2.

People can stop by any time those days and sign up for a chance to win 100 gallons of heating oil.
