Thorntons Inc. is celebrating the grand opening of its newest location today, Thursday, Dec. 16.
The new store at 4740 Chamberlain Lane, marks the chain’s 44th location in the Louisville, Ky., metropolitan area. This latest addition expands the number of Thorntons store locations to 165, with operations in the Midwestern strongholds of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee.
“Our newest store in Louisville is an important element of Thorntons’ evolution and expansion,” said CEO Matt Thornton. “Not only does this grand opening celebrate our roots in the Louisville area, it showcases our commitment to the local economy and the one-of-a-kind service we continue to offer our loyal customers. But it doesn’t end there; this is strategic expansion of our brand as we continue to grow community by community, city by city, state by state.”
Thorntons customers will experience a redesigned, clean and friendly environment with a focus on high quality foods such as fresh sandwiches, salads and fruits, plus enhanced offerings of hot beverages, particularly Thorntons premium-blend coffees, and fountain drinks. A multitude of customer-appreciation promotions are also planned during the opening days and weeks of the celebration, highlighted by free coffee and fountain beverages for everyone, buy one-get one specials, as well as weekly door buster giveaways.
In addition, customers can enjoy the everyday specialties they’ve come to expect from Thorntons with ‘hot off the grill’ convenience food items, hot, cold and frozen beverages made with 100% filtered water, quality food and grocery items at economical prices, and as always, competitively-priced premium fuel available for any type of vehicle.
Additionally, Thorntons offers the eco-friendly E85 Flex Fuel at its newest location because E85 is a motor fuel blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. And Ethanol is a completely renewable, domestic, environmentally friendly fuel that enhances the nation’s economy and energy independence and creates little to no emissions at the tail pipe, which means cleaner air and a reduction in pollution. Along with its plans for an expansion of E85, Thorntons continues to explore alternative fuel options, offering its customers affordable and environmentally efficient fuels for all of their driving needs.
