Love's looking at expansion to US 59

ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - The new overpass may yield big business at the FM 2021/US 59 intersection as a travel stop chain is looking at the location for expansion.

Love's Communication Specialist Kealey Dorian said the company is looking at the location but has not yet purchased the property.

"We love the location on 59," Dorian said. "It is popular with commercial vehicles as well as everyday commuters. We think it is a good place to open one."

Dorian explained the company is waiting for some required sewer issues to be resolved before making a decision. She could not give a time frame.

Love's was founded in 1964 and is headquartered in Oklahoma City and boasts more than 380 locations across 40 states. One location is on the intersection of Loop 287 and Lufkin Avenue, which will remain open even with the expansion.
