Kwik Trip to Kingsford | News, sports, jobs

KINGSFORD – A Kwik Trip convenience store is to be built in Kingsford.

Kingsford City Council unanimously approved Monday the construction of a 10,000 square foot store on 2 1/2 acres on Carpenter Avenue.

The store will be adjacent to Iron Mountain-Kingsford Credit Union and will have 10 pumps and a single car wash.

Scott Teigen, vice president of Kwik Trip, said they aim for completion by 2024 but hope it will happen sooner. The business will have 30 to 35 employees, some full-time and some part-time. They hope to have the shop open 24 hours.

Teigen said the cost of construction is estimated at about $ 4.5 million. Prior to COVID-19, the new store would have cost about $ 1 million less to build, he noted.

In September, Iron Mountain agreed to sell 2.8 acres of town to Kwik Trip to build a new fuel / consumer goods store north of Dollar General on North Stephenson Avenue. The construction of the plant is to begin no later than 2023.

Based in La Crosse, Wisconsin, Kwik Trip recently opened its 799th store.

Stores closest to Iron Mountain include a new station in Crivitz, Wisconsin, and others in Marinette and Eagle River, Wisconsin.

In addition to hot and fresh meals, Kwik Trip introduced take-away meals across the company last year.
