Susser's Store Count Grows With Entry Into New Markets
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -- Central Texas will see more Stripes convenience stores popping up as its locally based parent company continues to expand the retail brand.
Susser Holdings Corp., owner of Stripes LLC and the Laredo Taco Co., plans to open two stores in Killeen this year, as well as three additional stores in Copperas Cove, Gatesville and Temple, respectively. The company has already opened locations in Temple and Lampasas, according to the Killeen Daily Herald.
"We recognize the growth of this area, and Killeen and the other cities are strategically located on a corridor between Dallas and San Antonio," said Jessica Davila-Burnett, Stripes' public relations director. "We want to be a part of the growth in serving the people of Killeen and Central Texas."
The current Stripes prototype measures 7,000 square feet and includes a gas station. Each store employs between 30 and 40 people, Davila-Burnett told the newspaper.
The new stores will be located at the following intersections:
- Trimmier Avenue and Stagecoach Road in Killeen (opening this fall)
- W.S. Young Drive and Stan Schlueter Loop in Killeen (opening this summer)
- U.S. Highway 190 and Avenue D, in front of Additional Storage, in Copperas Cove (opening this winter)
- Business 36 and U.S. Highway 84 in Gatesville (opening this summer)
- A second Temple location in the 5500 block of West Adams Avenue (opening this spring)
