JENKS, Okla. and GREEN BAY, Wis. -- After a long wait, the people of Jenks, Okla., are getting their own QuikTrip store. The new facility will be 4,653 square feet and include eight two-sided gas pumps, The Jenks Journal reported.
Tulsa, Okla.-based QuikTrip Corp. purchased the land, located off the Creek Turnpike, "some time ago," according to Jenks Planning Director Robert Bell, but the convenience store chain put off construction, knowing that road projects in the area were "crucial to the site."
The site posed some access issues, but QuikTrip has worked to remedy flow problems of both incoming and outgoing traffic. "Traffic flow will work well," Bell said.
Jenks Chamber of Commerce President Annette Bowles said she was excited about the pending construction. "We need retail [stores] desperately. I look forward to partnering with QuikTrip in helping them become an integral part of our community," she said.
Construction on the project is expected to be complete in the fall, Bell said.
In related news, La Crosse, Wis.-based Kwik Trip Inc. is planning two new convenience stores in the Green Bay metro area, according to a report by the Green Bay Press Gazette citing developer Paul Kaczrowski, who sold the land for each development.
One Kwik Trip gas station and convenience store will be built at 935 Lombardi Ave., former site of Kaczrowski's Prestige Realty office. The other will be constructed near his Black Forest Dining & Spirits restaurant at 1966 Velp Ave. in Howard.
Kwik Trip wants to begin construction as soon as it can, Kaczrowski told the newspaper. The convenience chain currently has six stores open in the Green Bay metro area.
