Newest Kwik Trip Store in Rochester is Open 24/7 Starting Thursday
We've basically been waiting the entire COVID pandemic for this news. The NEW Kwik Trip store in Northeast Rochester is almost finished and will be opening its doors at 2170 Wheelock Dr. NE at 5 am on Thursday, July 29th, 2021.
If you missed the news back in 2019, you can get the full story here. To sum it up, the Kwik Trip location that is just off of Circle Drive by Century High School was too small so a rebuild was in the works for a new store that included more square footage in the floorplan.
The location at 2335 26th St NE will be closing its doors at 6 pm on Wednesday, July 28th, and the new store will open at 5 am on Thursday, July 29th. The new store will be open 24 hours.
Do you remember when there used to be a walking bridge across Broadway?
It might be hard to believe, but there was a time when there weren't any Kwik Trips in Rochester. IKR?! Where did people buy their milk and bananas? We even had a walking bridge at one point that went over South Broadway. See it for yourself below and other spots in town that have changed quite a bit through the years.
Wow! Check out how Rochester has changed throughout the years in these Google photos.
Did you hear about the teddy bear that visited all of the Kwik Trips in Minnesota?
Talk about a road trip! If you missed it, a teddy bear that danced around and has a goal of bringing smiles to people everywhere, went on a road trip to bring smiles to every single Kwik Trip store in Minnesota. He even stopped at the Rochester store that is closing on Wednesday. He took a bunch of selfies and you can enjoy those below.
