A new Kum & Go located on Highway 40 in Granby, Colo., is set to open this month, the Sky-Hi Daily News reported.
The opening target for the 3,400 square-foot convenience store and gas station is 6 a.m. on Dec. 18. The store will feature heavily insulated glass, LED cooler door lights and energy-efficient coolers, as well as 12 conventional fueling stations with unleaded, unleaded plus, premium, E85 and diesel fuels.
“The ability to offer a Kum & Go location for the residents of Granby and surrounding areas is exciting for us,” said Kyle Krause, Kum & Go president and CEO, in a prepared statement. “This is an area of the country where we look to continue to build relationships with businesses and patrons within the community, and maintain growth.”
In combination with the store’s opening, Kum & Go officials will also donate $2,000 to the East Grand School District.
“We spoke to Superintendent Karas to announce the pledge and they were very excited,” said Meggan Kring, Kum & Go’s director of corporate communications. “It has yet to be determined where they will use the money.”
The store will return at least 10% of its profits to the communities it serves annually, with a focus on giving to youth and education.
“We believe that quality education is vital to the futures of both the students and the community,” Krause said.
The Kum & Go operation’s request for a license to sell 3.2% (alcohol) beer was scheduled to be heard by the Town of Granby on Tuesday night, Dec. 8.
Kum & Go company operates more than 400 convenience stores in 11 states. The company also has plans to open another new Colorado store in downtown Winter Park.
