Love's opens 300th store with fanfare
Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores has reached a milestone: 300 store locations. Its newest travel stop is located in Lenoir City, Tenn.
To commemorate the occasion, Love’s is holding a grand opening event for its customers and the community today, July 23, 2013. Plans for the event include:
* appearances by FrontRow Motorsports NASCAR drivers #38 David Gilliland and #34 David Ragan with the Love’s car; and
* a ribbon-cutting event hosted by the Loudon County Chamber of Commerce at the new Love’s Travel Stop on Interstate 40 at exit 364.
Love’s will present the community with a $15,000 donation toward the restoration of Lenoir City’s downtown War Memorial building and a $2,000 donation for construction of a handicap accessible community park.
Love’s employees from stores in the region are also holding a volunteer event repainting picnic tables at the Lenoir City Park. The volunteer effort was coordinated with the help of the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.
“This event shows our continued growth and dedication to the communities that make our business possible,” said Tom Love, founder and CEO of Love’s Travel Stops.
The ribbon cutting event will be held at 10:30 a.m.; Gilliland and Ragan will sign autographs and take photos with fans between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. The volunteer event will begin at 4:30 p.m. at the Lenoir City Park.
