West Des Moines, Iowa -- C-store operator Kum & Go said Friday it has opened a new store in Gillette, Wyoming. The previous store was razed in July 2012 to make room for the all-new Kum & Go store design.
The nearly 5,000-sq.-ft. store introduces many new features both inside and outside the buildings. Inside, customers will find a larger product selection, a center checkout area with customer-focused staff, and an expanded Go Fresh Market.
Outside, a larger number of fueling positions, as well more variety in fuel offerings, give customers more choices and value at the pump.
“This store layout has been designed with our customers in mind,” said president and CEO Kyle J. Krause.
The new design also demonstrates a strong emphasis on sustainability. Kum & Go designs and constructs the stores with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification in mind, submitting each for LEED certification.
Sustainable features of the newest Kum & Go store include Solatube skylights, LED lighting both inside and outside the store, low-flow water efficient fixtures, and high energy-efficiency equipment. Each store is built using recyclable materials and locally sourced materials.
