LACROSSE, Wis. -- Kwik Trip Inc., operator of some 350 Kwik Trip and Kwik Star convenience stores in three states, has acquired a Petro & Provisions (P&P) convenience store in Ames, Iowa.
The building has been empty for several months, the Cresco (Iowa) Times reported.
Kwik Trip, which operates convenience stores and travel centers in Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota, plans to remodel and expand the existing building during the month of August. The business is expected to open under the Kwik Star name in early to mid September.
The expansion is planned in order to house a larger kitchen and eating area plus offer a wide-range of convenience foods in addition to petroleum and other products.
Originally it was believed the company was going to raze the P&P building. Those rumors, however, are not true, the report said.
