A site plan for a new Kwik Trip store at 1500 Mill Street was approved by the New London Planning Commission at their Oct. 27 meeting.
The plan includes a total rebuild and redevelopment at the current site. Construction is slated to begin in the spring of 2011.
The total site will include a new 5,451 square foot convenience store, a 1,741 square foot car wash and 44,721 sq. feet of paved area with 26 parking stalls.
“It’s definitely going to be a top shelf building,” said Zoning and Building Inspector Paul Hanlon. The exterior of the building will consist of red brick with tan brick soldier courses and a standing seam metal roof with red and white aluminum fascia.
The 24 hour store will sell products similar to that of their existing Kwik Trip stores including E-85 fuel, gasoline, diesel, groceries, bakery, dairy, hot and cold food and beverages, tobacco products, lotto, convenience store merchandise, ice, and propane.
Staffing of the store will consist of about 20 employees.
Kwik Trip has also acquired the former BP property near Burger King at the intersection of Shawano Street and STH 54; however there have been no site plans submitted or approved for development of that location. Some underground upgrades and interior renovation have taken place at the site.
Jernegan’s Healthmart addition
The commission also approved an addition at Jernegan’s Healthmart Pharmacy on Mill and Douglas Streets in New London. The proposed addition will be approximately 500 square feet, with construction beginning this fall. The site plan includes nine parking stalls.
