ODESSA, Texas -- Susser Holdings Corp. purchased land at the corner of Eastridge and Faudree roads in northeastern Odessa to build a Stripes convenience store in an area known for luxury homes and golf courses, the Odessa American reported.
Susser spokesman Otis Peaks said an opening date has yet to be announced. The store is expected to be the first in Odessa to open under the Stripes name. Corpus Christi, Texas-based Susser purchased San Angelo, Texas-based Town & Country stores in September 2007 and has been in the process of rebranding the stores to the Stripes banner.
Peaks told the newspaper rebranding recently began in Abilene, Texas, and he expects conversions will start in Odessa sometime between now and the end of the year.
Instead of the familiar Country Cookin' restaurants found in many Town & Country stores, the new Odessa Stripes location and the rebranded stores will feature Stripes' Laredo Taco Co. restaurant concept, according to Peaks. But he noted that the Laredo Taco Co. would feature many of the same items as Country Cookin' does.
"It won't have a major impact as far as what the consumer sees," Peaks said.
In other new store news, Quick Chek, a privately owned chain of nearly 120 convenience store locations throughout New Jersey and southern New York, is celebrating the grand opening of its newest store located in Wantage, N.J.
To celebrate, the c-store operator is offering $0.25 for every sub, sandwich and wrap sold during its first 30 days of operation to the Wantage Township Volunteer Fire Department.
