Love’s Travel Stops opens in Kansas

Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores on Thursday opened a new location in Topeka, Kansas.

Located off U.S. 75, the store adds 50 jobs and 75 truck and 46 car parking spaces to Shawnee County.

“We’re excited to now be serving customers at our 26th location in Kansas,” said Tom Love, founder and executive chairman of Love’s. “We know that there’s a shortage of parking for professional drivers in this corridor, so we’re happy to add to the number of spaces available.”

In honor of the grand opening, Love’s will donate $2,000, split between the Sunflower Soccer Association and the Boys & Girls Club of Topeka, the company said.
