Love’s Travel Stops opened its third and largest store in Guthrie on Thursday morning, along the rapid growing area of Highway 33 and Interstate 35. The opening takes Love’s past the mark of 300 travel stops.
“Guthrie and Love’s have had a thriving relationship for more than 30 years,” said Tom Love, founder and executive chairman of Love’s Travel Stops. “We are eager to serve our customers by opening our third Guthrie location with the ‘Clean Places, Friendly Faces’ Love’s is known for.”
The 24-hour, 10,000 square foot facility adds approximately 50 jobs to Logan County. Customers can enjoy a Carl’s Jr. with Green Burrito restaurant, gourmet coffee, fresh fruit, gift merchandise, name-brand electronics and more. Professional drivers can take advantage of seven showers, 106 truck-parking spaces and a Love’s Truck Tire Care center. This location will also add a compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling option for motorists and heavy-duty trucks this spring.
Love’s will give $1,000 donations to the Kiwanis Club and Guthrie Public Schools as a part of a ribbon cutting to be held in conjunction with the Guthrie Chamber of Commerce. The checks will be presented at the new Love’s at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 16. Members of the community are invited and encouraged to attend the ribbon cutting.
“Opening another location in Oklahoma is a testament to our commitment to serve the customer,” co-CEO of Love’s Greg Love said.
The company’s Truck Tire Care centers offer roadside assistance, tire care and light mechanical services for professional truck drivers.
The Oklahoma City based company was founded in 1964 and has more than 360 locations in 40 states.
