The Love’s Travel Stop in New London is now open.

Adding approximately 60 jobs to Ralls County, the new travel shop is located at US Highway 61 and State Route 19. A new Hardee’s restaurant is also attached.

“We are excited about bringing new employment opportunities and services to the New London area,” Tom Love, founder and executive chairman says.

The store is open 24 hours a day all year round and offers gourmet coffee, fresh fruit, and gift items in addition to traditional convenient store items. The New London location also includes 112 truck-parking spaces, five showers, and a Love’s Truck Tire Care center. The New London location is the 15th in Missouri.

Love’s is celebrating by donating $2,000 to The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri which will support hunger prevention programs in the area.

Founded in 1964, Love’s is headquartered in Oklahoma City and has more than 400 locations in 40 states. For more information, visit www.loves.com.
