La Plume – The Keystone College community and the local community will come together on Tuesday, February 18 to celebrate the grand opening of the new Keystone Commons retail development complex.
Festivities will take place from 10–11 a.m. inside the new Steak n Shake restaurant. Officials and friends from Keystone, Factoryville Borough, state government, and representatives of the businesses comprising the new $3.5 million development will be on hand.
While the official ribbon-cutting will take place inside the Steak n Shake, the grand opening will also celebrate Penn East Federal Credit Union, Keystone Fitness, and the College Green Eatery and Market.
“The grand opening of the Keystone Commons will be a special day for our college community and for our local area. We look forward to the day’s events and to the success of this wonderful retail complex for years to come.”
Keystone College President Tracy L. Brundage, Ph.D.

In addition to the Keystone College Bookstore, the College Green Eatery and Market features a Starbucks café and a variety of fresh food, produce, and grocery products. Keystone Fitness is owned and operated by local physical therapist Frank Cawley and is open to Keystone students, faculty, and staff and the public. Keystone Commons is located on College Avenue on the Keystone College campus.
