This newly renovated location is the next in a series of stores that are focused on Thorntons not only as a place to fuel up, but also a food and beverage destination. This store will feature hot breakfast and lunch sandwiches, which are prepared on site, as well as a full bakery stocked with doughnuts, croissants, fresh-baked cookies, and hot pretzels.
The lunch options will include freshly prepared deli sandwiches, salads and cut fruits. Additional features include a treat center with ice cream toppings, including all the favorites: chocolate and caramel syrup, Oreo and Butterfinger crumbles, waffle pieces, M&M’s and more.
As part of their ongoing commitment to the community, Thorntons has chosen to support Kosair Charities this holiday season, so that they may be able to provide more toys and bikes to Kosair Kids.
The store opened to the public on Dec. 5 at 6 a.m.
Headquartered in Louisville, Ky., Thorntons operates 179 convenience stores, car washes and travel plazas in six states.
