KINGSTON, N.Y. -- Construction will begin within a month for a new Quick Chek convenience store here, a city official told the Daily Freeman.
Inspectors granted approvals for Whitehouse Station, N.J.-based Quick Chek Corp. for a building permit for construction at the former site of the Albany Avenue Garage, Kingston Fire Chief Richard Salzmann, who also heads the city's Building Safety Division, told the paper.
Construction on the Quick Chek would start between mid-March and early April, he said, citing a recent meeting with the company. In July, the city planning board approved Quick Chek's proposal for the project, according to the paper. At the time, a Quick Chek representative said construction would last for approximately eight months, the report stated.
Quick Chek is also constructing a location in Lake Katrine, N.Y., according to the paper.
Meanwhile, QuikTrip will open store No. 36 for the East Kellogg, Kan., region in July or August, reported the Wichita Eagle.
The 4,600-square-foot store will cost $350,000 and employ 11 to 15 people, the report stated, citing company spokesman Mike Thornbrugh.
The store will also include eight gas pumps and the chain's standard offering of drinks, food and other items, according to the report.
QuikTrip is "never out of the growth business," Thornbrugh told the paper. "Wichita is an area that will continue to grow for us."
