MINT HILL – QuikTrip has expressed interest in opening a convenience store in town, but it’s not quite clear where a store could be developed.
Adam Serafin and John DiBernardo met with town leaders during the quarterly developers’ workshop Oct. 12 at Mint Hill Town Hall.
They identified a three-acre site near Fairview and Brief roads. Mayor Ted Biggers told them the town would love to have the convenience store, depending on where it’s built, according to meeting minutes.
DiBernardo asked if the town would like to see a QuikTrip at an infill site or along the interstate, but Biggers replied the board would need to hold a workshop to prioritize a location.
DiBernardo told commissioners each store generates $1.2 million in local and state taxes annually and creates an average of 20 new jobs, according to minutes.
QuikTrip has 759 stores in 11 states, including one in Matthews.
