Corner Store Continues to Get Bigger in Texas
SAN ANTONIO -- They say "everything is bigger in Texas," and that includes CST Brands Inc.'s store count in the Lone Star State. The company recently opened two new Corner Store locations, one in Austin and the other in Willis.
The 4,650-square-foot Austin store, located at 12,300 Harris Branch Pkwy., is Corner Store's 26th location in the area. The 5,650-square-foot Willis store, located at 25 Calvary Road, is its second in that community.
Both stores feature indoor and outdoor dining, an ATM, and eight gas dispensers pumping diesel and E85. They also offer Corner Store's signature fresh-baked kolaches, whoopie pies, breakfast tacos, grill items, fruits and salads.
CST Brands, which was spun off from Valero Energy Corp. on May 1, plans to build 15 new stores by the end of 2013. More than half of its 1,035 U.S. stores are located in Texas.
San Antonio-based CST Brands operates nearly 1,900 convenience stores and gas stations when factoring in its Dēpanneur du Coin Canadian division.
