(KTAL/KMSS) – City leaders are celebrating the opening of the Love’s Travel Stop in Blanchard.

The new Love’s general manager is excited to serve customers traveling through North Market.

“Clean places and friendly faces is our motto,” said Derek Ward, General Manager of Love’s in Blanchard. “When you think about it we’re country-wide, 645 stores countrywide every time we open up a store our main goal is to cater to the community which we serve,”
