OKLAHOMA CITY—Love’s Travel Stops is continuing its growth plans by opening the company’s 600th location in Perry, Oklahoma. The 12,000 square-foot store adds 60 truck parking spaces and 70 jobs to Noble County.
The location is open 24/7 and offers many amenities, including Arby’s; 65 car parking spaces; six diesel bays; RV dump station; propane; five showers; laundry facilities; CAT scale; bean-to-cup gourmet coffee; Fresh Kitchen concept; Mobile to Go Zone with the latest GPS, headsets and smartphone accessories; and a dog park.
In honor of the grand opening, Love’s donated $15,000 to the Oklahoma Lions Service Foundation to make Lions Park in Perry more accessible to children of all abilities. In addition to opening new locations, Love’s recently started adding RV hookups and Amazon lockers to better serve customers.
“As Love’s opens its 600th location in the U.S., and 81st in its home state of Oklahoma, the company remains committed to being the best and most comprehensive travel stop on the highway and adding new amenities and services to get customers back on the road quickly and safely,” said Shane Wharton, president of Love’s. “When you walk into a Love’s, you’ll see the same Clean Places, Friendly Faces that you’ve seen for the past 58 years, and that’s Love’s promise to customers.”
With adding RV hookups to locations, Love’s provides RV customers with clean and safe places to stay while they’re traveling. Water, electric and sewer hookups and Wi-Fi are available at 21 existing Love’s locations across the country. The company also recently opened its first RV park in Cordele, Georgia. The Cordele location offers full hookups, fire pits, pickle ball courts, a splash pad, laundry and more. Customers can visit lovesrvstops.com for a list of locations and to book a stay.
In addition to RV hookups, Love’s joined Amazon’s package pickup network to provide its customers access to Amazon Lockers at over 50 locations nationwide. These alternate pickup locations offer customers convenience, flexibility and the security of knowing when and where their package will be waiting for them. Customers making a purchase on Amazon will have the option to choose the Love’s location nearest them, if applicable.
Love’s recently announced the company and its customers raised more than $4.3 million through its annual Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals campaign, surpassing last year’s total by more than $1 million. Since 1999, the company has raised more than $40 million for children’s hospitals in the states where Love’s stores are located.
