EZ GO stores are turning into Love’s truck stops


Love’s Travel Stops is currently at work converting several EZ GO convenience stores into Love’s locations.

Love’s announced on Tuesday that the former EZ GO in Walters, Oklahoma, has been converted into a Love’s.

The store is located along the H. E. Bailey Turnpike. It offers 20 truck parking spaces.

The Walters store is just one of many EZ GO stores that Love’s is rebranding after acquiring EZ GO from Oklahoma-based Carey Johnson Oil Company in April 2023.

The acquisition included six travel stops located on Oklahoma turnpikes, five on the Kansas Turnpike and 11 convenience stores in Oklahoma and Nebraska.

Love’s notes that this is the first time that their brand will include Turnpike locations.

“We are excited to add locations in Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska and welcome nearly 400 new team members to the Love’s Family of Companies,” said Shane Wharton, president of Love’s, following the April acquisition announcement. “The opportunity to expand into serving commercial and casual customers on the two state turnpikes supports our strategic priority of pursuing adjacent acquisition opportunities. In addition to being family-owned, we share a similar culture with the seller in that we operate on a customer-centric model focused on an extensive assortment of products, superior customer experience and inviting environment.”
