Construction on the new 7,500 square foot Kwik Trip at the corner of Hwy. A and Hwy. 12 in Black River Falls began recently, with the new location expected to open Oct. 19.

“Black River Falls is a great community for us and we are just delighted to have a second store there,” John McHugh said, director of public relations. “Obviously we have one on the one side of town, but if you’re coming in from the west or getting off at that exit, there isn’t a Kwik Trip there so it gave us the ability to be on both exits of the interstate.”

This new store will be the second Kwik Trip in Black River Falls, with the other one located near the other Interstate 94 exit on Hwy.
