Kum & Go Reopens Colorado Store in Larger Format

Kum & Go LC has revamped and reopened its Yampa Avenue store in Craig, Colo., offering customers 3,400 square feet of expanded offerings and boosting the site’s energy efficiency with new design elements.

“We are thrilled to offer the residents of Craig a brand-new Kum & Go store with easier access and a broader offering of products,” said Kyle Krause, Kum & Go president and CEO. “We appreciate our customers’ patience and loyalty during construction. Kum & Go has enjoyed doing business in Craig for 20 years and we’re excited to introduce our new store to the community.”

The new store features 12 conventional fueling stations with unleaded, unleaded plus, premium and diesel fuels, as well as the company’s wide selection of food and beverages like Java Ridge Premium Coffee, Go Fresh Market Sandwiches, Nuclear energy drinks and Nutri2o nutraceutical waters. The West Des Moines, Iowa-based company also offers potato chips, bottled water, cookies and candy under the well-known Hiland brand.

As part of Kum & Go’s commitment to developing environmentally friendly building and operating practices, the new store integrates heavily insulated glass, LED cooler door lights and energy-efficient coolers.

“We want Kum & Go to continue to be Craig’s store of choice for coffee, pop or soda in the morning, gas after work and all the stops in between,” Krause said.

A Kum & Go store on West Victory Way, one of three in the Craig area, is currently being rebuilt and is scheduled to re-open in August. Kum & Go has 27 Colorado stores, including locations in Greeley and Brighton that opened earlier this year.

The company plans to continue its growth in Colorado over the next few years with new stores scheduled to be built in the Colorado cities of Conifer, DeBeque and Loveland.

Kum & Go has more than 430 convenience stores in 12 states and is the 21st largest convenience store chain in the U.S.
