A new business has opened along I-94 in St. Clair County. Love’s Travel Stops and Country Stores recently opened the doors in St. Clair Township. The store has a national presence, and is the company’s 499th location. Location 500 is being opened simultaneously in Edon, Ohio. The 8,000 square foot St. Clair location will add 50 jobs to the area. The building will also include a McDonald’s and Subway restaurant. Love’s offers several different amenities at the location including RV parking, showers, diesel fuel, laundry facilities, a weigh scale, and a dog park just to name a few.
Founder and executive chairman of Love’s, Tom Love said, “The locations will become an important part of the [Love’s] story.” He said, “When they opened their first store in 1964, they couldn’t have imagined how the company would grow.” He finished by saying they “wouldn’t be here today without loyal customers and employees.” Both of the new Love’s locations will operate 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The company also plans to donate $2,000 to St. Clair County RESA in honor of their Grand Opening.
