(Shelby) There are 290 Love’s Travel Stop locations nationwide and the newest one will be in Shelby, Iowa.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held Monday afternoon off of Interstate-80 at Exit 34. Construction is expected to begin in May with the hopes of having the truck stop open by the end of the calendar year.
“The city is very excited to have Love's come to our community. We are excited about the employment opportunities that it is going to give our area. Hopefully we are going to be able to have some new families be able to move into our community and be able to see our community grow.”
Shelby Mayor Lisa Juhl says they have had a great working relationship with officials from Love’s Travel Stop.
The Love’s in Shelby will feature Chester’s Chicken and McDonald’s Restaurants. It will have 90 parking spaces for professional truck drivers and a Love’s Truck Tire Care center.
