WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Kum & Go L.C. recently opened three new stores in Lowell and Bentonville, Ark., and Pawnee, Okla.
Each of the two Arkansas stores are 3,400 square feet, and took less than 100 days to construct.
"Kum & Go is excited for our continued growth in Northwest Arkansas," Kyle Krause, Kum & Go president and CEO, said in a statement. "We now have nine stores in the Northwest Arkansas area, and a total of 24 in the state. We appreciate the support of Arkansas and will continue to provide the service and products that our customers want and expect."
The new stores both feature 20 conventional fueling stations, offering unleaded, unleaded plus, premium, E85 and diesel fuels. Kum & Go stores also feature a wide selection of food and beverage products, including Java Ridge Premium Coffee, Go Fresh Market Sandwiches, Nuclear energy drinks and Nutri2o nutraceutical waters. The Iowa-based company also offers potato chips, bottled water, cookies and candy under the well-known Hiland brand name in its stores.
The two locations are running four-week grand opening events beginning Friday, March 13. During this event, customers will enjoy discounted pricing on various products including fountain drinks, Hiland chips, hot dogs, tornados, breakfast sandwiches and 2-liter sodas, the company reported.
An additional grand opening weekend will be held at each location on Friday and Saturday, March 27 and 28, where customers can take advantage of free 32-ounce fountain drinks and 50-cent hot dogs, as well as register at stores to win prizes.
Meanwhile, the store in Oklahoma is 4,000 square feet, and attached to a McDonald’s restaurant located on the Cimarron Turnpike at Exit 36 near Lone Chimney, Okla.
"We are thrilled to offer a convenient interstate Kum & Go location for travelers on the Cimarron Turnpike," said Krause. "We are eager to offer turnpike travelers visitors, businesses and patrons within the community a new destination for all their convenience store needs."
As part of Kum & Go’s commitment to developing environmentally friendly building and operating practices, the new Oklahoma store integrates heavily insulated glass, LED cooler door lights and energy-efficient coolers into its energy-efficient design, the company reported.
