OKLAHOMA CITY — From old-school turntables to futuristic virtual reality goggles, Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores is becoming a one-stop destination for not only travel, but shopping this holiday season.
With toys and gifts available year-round nationwide, the travel stop operator is placing a greater focus on generational-geared offerings, with items that will pique the interests of Baby Boomers, millennials and Generation Z alike.
"We take pride in offering quality gift items for our customers because we want to meet as many of their needs as possible," said Mark Romig, director of merchandising for Love's. "Many professional drivers who are on the road between now and Christmas won't have a chance to shop anywhere else. The toys, electronics and other gifts in our stores also provide leisure travelers and members of the community with another option to find popular items that are competitively priced."
For younger recipients, Love's has gifts such as a giant remote control crane set, a "Finding Dory" Design a Vinyl set, Perfect Princess Fairy doll sets, and Pop! Vinyl Figurines available in "Star Wars," Marvel and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" characters.
Seasoned generations can find the Vinyl Style Groove Turntable, Simon Portable Game and the Sock Monkey Jack-In-The-Box, while those seeking more modern, futuristic gifts can choose from virtual reality goggles and drones, or a variety of electronics, mobile accessories and Bluetooth headsets.
"More than 170 locations have Mobile To-Go Zones, which offer a wider variety of mobile accessories and electronics," Romig noted. "From a family who forgot their mobile phone charger, to a professional driver who needs to use a headset while driving, it’s another way we can serve our customers who are always on the go."
Among Love's stocking stuffers are Minions or Disney Princess Sticker Activity Fun sets, an assortment of plush animals, and holiday candies and chocolates,.
