Ozark residents now have a new place to fuel up, purchase meals and snacks and find unique gift items. Love’s Travel Stop (Love’s) in Ozark, at 3771 South U.S. Highway 231, opened for business Thursday, October 2.
Inside the 10,000 square foot facility, customers will have 24-hour access to gourmet coffee, fresh fruit, travel items and more. The new travel stop also has an Arby’s restaurant. Seven showers, 68 truck parking spaces and a Love’s Truck Tire Care center are available for professional drivers.
“Ozark is a good location for us to expand our footprint in Alabama,” said Tom Love, founder and executive chairman of Love’s Travel Stops. “It has a strong community base and U.S. Highway 231 is a well-traveled route for professional drivers and travelers. We look forward to providing the ‘Clean Places, Friendly Faces’ Love’s is known for to a new part of the state.”
The Ozark Love’s Travel Shops store General Manager is Chris Adams. This is the 9th Love’s Travel Stops Store to locate in Alabama and the first on U.S. 231.
Love’s invited members of the community to celebrate the opening of the ninth Love’s Travel Stop in the state at a ribbon cutting ceremony
at the location on Wednesday, October 8. As part of the festivities, Love’s presented $1,000 donations to the Dale County Board of Education and the Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Alabama.
