    Idea for new Loves: top end of US 63 in Iowa near the Casey's that's there. It's about 5 miles or so from the MN line.

    There's quite a few trucks going through that area..build a Loves with maybe 50 to 70 parking spots.

    Add a Mexican fast food place and I think the area will see some clientele

    Loves has gone to crap. Parking is a joke. Wait forever in line for fuel because other idiots block the fuel island.

    I was driving on I85 a few days ago and I passed by a Love's in Pelzer, SC just outside of Greenville, SC. I didn't stop but just looked at it as I was passing it on the interstate and I saw trucks parked there during the afternoon hours. It's not on the Love's App, not on Truckers Path App and Google Maps says it's "temporarily closed" and on the satellite picture for Google Maps it's showing that it's still under construction. But as I said I did see trucks parked there when I passed by it.

    So not sure if it's open yet or not but regardless, if it's not open yet it should be open real soon. Greenville and the surrounding area needs more parking bad, so this will be a welcomed addition, although I'm not sure how many parking spots they're going to have. That said, because that area needs parking so bad I bet that Love's will be full by 5:00pm everyday.

    That’s not even Loves fault. That is just ignorant ### truck drivers doing what they do.

    Love's also bought a truck stop in Commerce, Georgia a few years ago. It used to be something else, although I don't know what the name of the truck stop was before Love's took it over. When Love's first took it over it was nice, now it's kind of turned into a dump. But I blame that on its proximity to Atlanta, not on Love's itself. The bathrooms there could sure use a remodel though.

    The Love's in Oklahoma are real nice. Oklahoma is probably the best state for Love's, they have really nice and really clean stores all throughout that state and once you get off the interstates a lot of those rural Love's never fill up. The whole state is filled with Love's off the beaten path. I realize that's probably because Love's is HQ in Oklahoma and started its initial expansion in Oklahoma, but I'm just saying.

    Eventually, whenever Love's expansion slows down (even if it takes a decade or so), they need to do what PFJ are doing now and remodel some of their old Love's. Those new PFJ showers are sweet, Love's needs to do the same thing with their old stores eventually.

    No disagreement there. I only go near a Loves as a last resort. They are always packed ****-shows, everything is overpriced, and the fuel they sell is that bio-blend garbage that gives noticeably worse MPG.
