Floyd County’s first RaceTrac super convenience store opens on Tuesday, June 5, at the intersection of Martha Berry and the Armuchee Connector. As final preparations continue, hiring is continuing; apply at racetrac.com/careers. As many as 25 jobs are being created by the opening.
The 5,500-square-foot store will be open 24 hours a day and is “one of our new store prototypes, featuring a Swirl World frozen dessert station with up to 10 flavors and 41 toppings and a large coffee area with enough counter space to create the perfect cup of coffee. These new stores also have a more shoppable layout, ample seating, free Wi-Fi and more lighting in the store and parking lot to deliver a better guest experience. Outside all of our new and updated stores, you’ll find a clean, well-lit parking lot, and thoughtful elements like exterior seating options,” says Megan Shannon with RaceTrac’s communications office.
The company is based in metro Atlanta and has more than 600 company-owned and third-party contract operated stores under the RaceTrac and RaceWay names in 12 southern states.
RaceTrac is one of the businesses fueling a miniboom just north of the main entrance to Berry College. Goo-Goo Express recently opened a new car cleaning center directly across from the Armuchee Connector intersection. DiPrima’s shoe store also has an expansion under way just south of the connector and Martha Berry.
Also Friday, the company had this to say about reports of another local store: “We are not currently pursuing a location in West Rome but please feel free to reach out in the future as we continue to expand our store count throughout Georgia.”
