SALISBURY, N.C. (April 4, 2014) — Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores L.L.C. has opened a truck stop with truck tire center in Salisbury, its third travel stop in North Carolina and 310th nationwide.

The company’s latest outlet, at Exit 71 on I-85, offers an array of driver services and amenities available 24/7. The location has 85 truck parking spaces, seven showers and an on-site Love’s Truck Tire Care center.

Bulk DEF is available at the pump at all diesel lanes, the Oklahoma City-based firm said, along with RFID cardless fueling technology and CAT scales.

“Our Salisbury travel stop fills a gap in driver services,” according to Greg Love, co-CEO. “Professional drivers now have a welcome place to stop along I-85 between South Hill, Va., and Blacksburg, S.C. We look forward to offering the ‘Clean Places, Friendly Faces’ Love’s is known for to more drivers.”

Founded in 1964 by Tom Love, the family-owned and operated chain has more than 310 locations and 180 Truck Tire Care centers in 39 states and has forecast an approximate growth rate of 20 stores per year.

More information about Love’s is on its website.
