If you drive around metro Atlanta, the QuikTrip or QT sign is a very familiar gas station convenience store. It’s certainly my gas station of choice. Well…it looks like a Quik Trip Convenience Store – minus the gas is coming to Viewpoint Midtown! Seriously!!! We’ll be calling it QuikTrip Viewpoint Midtown!
Quik Trip Viewpoint Midtown Convenience Store Only
The prominent retail corner in Viewpoint Midtown, at 6th and Peachtree Streets will soon premier a new concept for the company at the Midtown location. Similar to 7-Eleven stores, the “just-the-convenience-store” concept is something that QT has been working on in its long term strategy.
QuikTrip has launched a new version of its suburban gas/convenience stores that feature an in-store kitchen with breakfast sandwiches, pizza and other hot items. A conversation with an employee at a QT on Chamblee Tucker Road in Chamblee said the Midtown store should have the same thing.
What will be interesting to see, is what impact this has on the original go-to store, CVS Pharmacy, located just across the street. While they have more grocery-type items, certainly the offerings of a QuikTrip are sure to make a dent in the opening and closing of their front doors!
A pass by the location shows work well under way on the remodel of the space, said to be around 3,500 square feet.
A late spring/early summer opening is planned, and in QT fashion, the location is scheduled to be open 24 hours. A normal QT looks much like this….
