In September, Have You Heard? reported that QuikTrip is working on a deal for a new store at Occidental Management’s Tyler Pointe development at the southeast corner of 13th and Tyler.
It turns out, that store will replace the QuikTrip at 13th and Maize Road.
Spokesman Mike Thornbrugh says the Tulsa-based chain wanted to rebuild its store at 13th and Maize Road to be a Generation 3 model, its latest model store.
“Simply, we just didn’t have space at the other corner,” Thornbrugh says.
The new store should open by the end of this year if all goes well.
