Little General Expands Portfolio with 100th Store
LOGAN, W. Va. -- Little General Store Inc. is on a roll. The Beckley, W.Va-based convenience store operator has opened its newest location at the former The Oaks Plaza Quick Stop and The Oaks Plaza Quick Stop Tavern here.
This convenience store marks the sixth Little General location in Logan County and the 100th in the company's portfolio. The newest store, at 319 George Kostas Dr., is beside the Fountain Place Mall. It was originally opened at the end of 2008 by Kenny Cox and run by the Cox Family until closing in April.
"We are very excited to welcome back the employees and customers of the former The Oaks Plaza Quick Stop to the Little General Family," said Brian Waugh, Little General Store's director of retail. "Located within our existing territory, this business has been known for providing quality goods and customer service since it was opened. We are excited about the possibilities with this location, and we look forward to meeting the convenience and gaming needs of the people of Logan and surrounding areas for many years to come by offering everything to everyone. This location will also have an ATM, New River Coffee, and everyday value on staples such as milk, pop, snacks, beer, wine, [cigarettes], tobacco and movie rentals."
"We look forward to leveraging our strengths and operating capability to further expand the Little General business model by offering great prices in convenient places to the residents, and miners of Logan County, & the Southern West Virginia Coalfields," he added.
This the second location Little General Store has opened in the past week. A new convenience store opened its doors in Weston in Lewis County on May 13.
The convenience store chain made headlines late last year when it acquired five Bandy's Sunny Spot Sunoco locations in Beckley, Marmet, Oceana, Hico and Calvin, W.Va. in December. The company followed up those acquisitions with the addition of two Exxon-branded stores to its portfolio in January, as CSNews Online previously reported.
