After months of anticipation the city of Chatfield, Minn. has a brand new Kwik Trip with several innovative conveniences for their guests. Not only is the Kwik Trip building brand new, but the manager is new as well. Edward Copeman, 28, is no stranger to Kwik Trip, Inc., however, having worked for the business almost 13 years.

Eddie became manager about three months ago, in July of 2013, and has been busy non-stop since then handling everything that comes with opening a new store. Eddie states that the opening of the new Kwik Trip has went very well with guests “loving the store,” he said.

There are many improvements that have come with the new store. Copeman stated, “being much more accessible for guests. With two entries and exits instead of one getting in and out is much easier than it was in the previous location.

Fueling up the vehicle should be a faster experience than in the past as the new location has many more gas pumps. Another difference is the fact that guests will find new additions to the gas pumps with diesel, E85, and recreational fuel now being offered along with unleaded which has been popular with customers. Also outside of the new Kwik Trip there are two picnic tables for guests to sit and relax or grab a bite to eat which have made a nice addition to the store as well.

There a new items inside the store also which include a Flavor Shot machine where customers can mix different flavors of creamers in their coffee and create their own signature blend. With more square feet to work with the new store was able to provide four more feet of grocery space and four additional feet of candy in the aisle. The store is large enough that more cooler items have been added for more variety for customers.

The new Kwik Trip is located at 150 Highway 30 in Chatfield. The phone number for the store is (507) 867-3415. Kwik Trip offers many convenient everyday items such as milk, bananas, potatoes, and bread just to name a few.

I am happy as the other place was so hard to drive in and out without hitting somebody.
