Two major truck stop chains have started out 2018 by opening a total of three locations, which add a combined 89 new truck parking spaces.
Love’s Travel Stops opened a new store in Alma, Arkansas, while Pilot Flying J opened a new location in Lamar, Colorado and unveiled a renovated one in Remington, Indiana.
New Love’s in Arkansas
Located at 8060 State Route 282 (Interstate 49, Exit 24), the store that opened last Thursday is the company’s third location along the 500-mile stretch of I-49.
The newest location includes:
- 55 truck parking spaces
- three showers
- Chester’s Chicken and Subway restaurants
- laundry facilities
- Love’s Truck Tire Care center
With the addition of the Alma store, Love’s now operates 12 travel stops in Arkansas. Love’s also operates two Speedco locations in the state in North Little Rock and West Memphis.
“We’re committed to growing in areas of need. Interstate 49 between Fayetteville, Arkansas, and Fort Smith, Arkansas, is a heavily traveled freight route with limited services for professional drivers,” said Greg Love, co-CEO of Love’s.
Love’s now has more than 440 locations in 41 states.
