New Borger, Texas-based United Express is company’s sixth c-store. A seventh location is set to open soon.
United Supermarkets, LLC, opened its newest freestanding convenience store today following a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its United Express location in Borger, Texas.
The 2,400 square-foot store is located southwest of the company’s United Supermarkets location, on Hwy. 136. Store hours at the convenience store will mirror that of the main store: 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
The opening of the “c-store” created 13 new jobs for the Borger community.
The Borger location is the company’s sixth freestanding convenience store: three under the United Express banner and three still under the Taste of Market Street name, all of which will be converted to United Express in the coming months. A seventh location is scheduled to open July 3.
The new location features a drive-thru window offering specialty coffee and tea service using the company’s own popular Arriba brand. A full line of made-to-order coffees and tea—including lattés, smoothies and frappes—is available both inside the store and via the drive-thru.
“Whether it’s grabbing a hot latté in the morning, or a bag of ice and gallon of milk on the way home, our Borger guests are truly going to enjoy the drive-thru experience,” said Tandy Arrant, convenience business manager for United Supermarkets LLC.
The convenience store also includes a five-pump (10-dispenser) fuel station offering both gasoline and diesel. In addition to traditional convenience items (fountain drinks, grab-and-go packaged food, propane tank refills, etc.), it also offers a wide assortment of “fresh to-go” items made inside the main store, including breakfast burritos and hot sandwiches, along with fresh fruit, f’Real milkshakes and other frozen beverages.
The store opening is the first of two major projects on the United agenda for Borger in 2013. A “refresh” of the main store is scheduled to begin in the coming weeks.
United Supermarkets LLC is a Texas-based, family-owned grocery chain with stores in 30 markets across north and west Texas.
