LA CROSSE, Wis. — Kwik Trip Inc. is adding to its network in its home state.
According to the Wisconsin Dells Events, the convenience store operator is acquiring four Dells Travel Mart c-store and gas station locations, The deal is expected to close later this year or early 2022.
Wisconsin Dells-based Travel Mart Inc. President and CEO Jeremy Alsaker told the news outlet one of stores will become a Kwik Trip while the others will become revitalized into "other things" but did not specify.
The Dunkin' Donuts inside the four c-stores will be remodeled or relocated, he added.
Separate from the Kwik Trip transaction, Travel Mart closed its Dells Travel Mart Pharmacy on July 15. Travel Mart will continue to operate three of Dells Travel Mart locations.

"We are certainly going to be actively engaged in running great locations until the closing and we'll continue to serve the community and tourists and highway travelers to a high level."
