GROUND BREAKING AT LOVE’S TRUCK STOP

 

Ground has been being leveled for a few weeks, and now it has been broken at the new Love’s Travel Stop on I-70 in Greenville.  The event brought many together including Representative Ron Stephens and Senator Kyle McCarter.  Love’s director of real estate and development Rick Shuffield was on hand.  Rick said the travel/truck stop should be open by October, and that they were very excited to open the first Love’s on I-70, here in Greenville.  The facility will sit on a 17-acre lot and soon the large gasoline containers will go into the ground.
