OKLAHOMA CITY — Love's Travel Stops went on a road trip, cutting the ribbon on five new locations in five states in one day.
On Dec. 15, the retailer welcomed customers at new locations in South Jacksonville, Ill.; Ellsworth, Iowa; New London, Mo.; Norfolk, Neb.; and Cayce, S.C. The fete marked the most store openings in a single day in Love's history.
