HOLLY RIDGE, N.C. (WNCT) – Drivers will soon have another gas station option to choose from in Holly Ridge.
Currently, there’s only one place to pump gas in town. It’s been this way for almost two years.
Coming next year, Circle K, will be located at the intersection of Highway 17 and 50, across from the town’s fire department.
It will be a large convenience store, offering a variety of food options. Holly Ridge’s Mayor Jeff Wenzel says the place will have curb appeal.
Existing buildings will be moved or demolished to make room on the 2.7-acre property. The company is currently in the middle of rezoning and taking surveys.
The mayor says this is another example the town is growing.
“More and more people are starting to see the growth of Holly Ridge and bringing their businesses in, large business and small businesses too,” said Wenzel.
Owners expect to open by the end of 2021.
