QuikTrip a large convenience store chain based outta Oklahoma has purchased the former BP on Wade Hampton and Buncombe, along with three other parcels. It'll cost $3 million to build and employ between 10-15 people. This will be their first store in the entire Carolinas and will add up to 7 more in the Upstate. Now wish Wawa would enter this area.

Cool. I've always liked QT. I stop at their Atlanta locations frequently.

This map shows their current markets. Most all large metro areas.

Agreed about Wawa.

Cool! QT was THE convenience store for the short time that I lived in Kansas City (a hundred & fifty years ago! lol), and was in the process of penetrating the Atlanta market when I lived there (only about a hundred years ago!).

P.S. - Just one more company making the Upstate its first foray into the Carolinas!

I'm mostly familiar with QT in Atlanta. They are comparable to the larger Spinx stores here. Nothing extraordinary about them overall.

Honestly, i'm not happy with this at all. In my opinon, one of the things we need less of in this area is gas stations. Also included are big box stores and fast food restaurants.

As the local population grows, so will the demand for more fuel/shopping/dining/________ options locally.

It's equal parts convenience store, equal parts gas station, think 7-11. Also, why do we need "less gas stations", I don't understand that comment?

Now if 7-11 started opening in this market--that would be exciting!

Because they're ugly looking for the most part and tend to create crime.
