The Murphy USA store is back in service at 741 Cartersville Highway in front of the East Rome Walmart at the Callier Springs intersection. The target opening date was Aug. 19 but they’ve beat that by five days. The former location basically was gas pumps and small walk-up store. It closed in late April for a scrape-and-build — and what a build. Murphy USA added a convenience store very similar to what Kmart did for years with the Express location off Hicks Drive and Turner McCall. In addition to new pumps, they’ve added a new curbing system so watch how you enter and exit the store. The Murphy upgrade was done independently — but during much of the same time — as the $1.5 million refit of Walmart.
