UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. — QuikTrip Corp. has purchased a site for a future gas station from University City.
The Tulsa, Oklahoma-based convenience store and gas station operator closed Tuesday on a $1.1 million purchase of 2 acres at 7579 Olive Blvd. near the intersection with North and South Road. QuikTrip wants to construct a roughly 5,000-square-foot QuikTrip convenience store and six-pump fuel facility on the site, which was purchased from University City. The new QuikTrip location would open in late 2022 and it is expected to provide more than a dozen full- and part-time jobs, according to a news release.
