United Supermarkets LLC opened its newest freestanding United Express convenience store Wednesday, Jan. 29 near the site of its next new store, at 34th and Soncy in Amarillo.
The 2,400 square-foot store is located east of the company’s newest United Supermarkets location, which is slated to open on March 5.
The Amarillo location is the company’s eighth freestanding convenience store under the United Express banner. The company also operates 19 other United Express fuel kiosks at its supermarket locations.
Hours of operation will be 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily.
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-through.
“Whether it’s grabbing a hot latté in the morning, or a bag of ice and gallon of milk on the way home, our Amarillo guests are truly going to enjoy the drive-through experience,” said Tandy Arrant, convenience business manager for United Supermarkets LLC.
The convenience store also includes a six-pump (12-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.
