Where Is Kwik Trip Opening A New Location? Plans Call For Additional Duluth And Superior Locations In 2015
In 2013 there were no Kwik Trips in the Twin Ports. In 2014, the Wisconsin-based store opened 8 locations in the Twin Ports area. Plans for 2015 call for an additional 7 locations. Definite plans for four of those locations have been made public.
Kwik Trip officials have confirmed the following locations for Duluth and Superior in 2015:
- 6520 Grand Avenue - located near the intersection of Raleigh and Grand. This location will be the second in the Twin Ports to include a car wash; The Superior-location of Kwik Trip on Banks was the first car wash location in the Twin Ports.
- South Superior - near the intersection of Tower Avenue and Highway 105. This lot used to be part of Thompson Rental.
- Arlington and Central Entrance in Duluth. This Kwik Trip location will be built on the site that used to house ICO.
- East 6th Street in Duluth.
- Near Menards in Hermantown. This would be the second location in Hermantown along Highway 53/Central Entrance.
It's interesting to note the changes that Kwik Trip has already brought to the Twin Ports area. The aggressively-competitive company has stabilized gasoline and dairy prices and eased the exit of a few of its competitors.
One geographic region that's being rumored is a move into the Iron Range.
