LANCASTER, Pa. -- Two new Turkey Hill Minit Markets being built in Humboldt Station and at Route 309 and 28th Street in Hazle Township, Pa. will include small restaurants, as well as car washes, the Standard Speaker reported.
The Lancaster-based chain obtained approval to build a 4,000-square-foot convenience store with 16 gasoline pumps and a car wash on a 2.876-acre lot along Route 924, at Station Circle and Commerce Drive in the new Humboldt Station.
Construction on the Humboldt facility will begin soon, Turkey Hill spokeswoman Erin Dimitriou Smith told the newspaper. "Ground will be broken in two to three weeks," she said. "It will be finished and open by mid-July or early August."
The store at Route 309 and 28th Street will be Turkey Hill's sixth in the area. Construction cannot begin until buildings on the site are razed, according to the report. The Route 309 store will be approximately 800 square feet smaller than the Humboldt Station facility.
Dimitriou Smith said the new store would not replace a Turkey Hill that has done business for two decades about a block away, at the intersection of 28th Street and Route 940. "Customers want that store, too," she said.
Both new builds will boast foodservice. Each store will have a Real Time Cafe, which will serve pizza, burgers, chicken tenders and a large variety of sandwiches and wraps. They will also have a full coffee bar and slushies, Smith stated.
Turkey Hill already has stores at 15th and Alter streets in Hazleton; at Route 93 and the Airport Beltway in Sugarloaf Township; and on Route 93 in Conyngham, as well as in Nesquehoning, Tamaqua, Lansford, Frackville, Ashland and Jim Thorpe.
The Turkey Hill at the Humboldt Station will join a Residence Inn by Marriott there. The 92-room extended-stay hotel is expected to open around the same time, according to the report.
