For truck drivers hauling freight in the Central Plains region out West, there’s a new Love’s Travel Stop coming to town. The truck stop is going to bring more than 50 parking spaces and just as many local jobs to the area. If you are a My Love Rewards carrying truck driver, check out what this new Love’s facility has to offer.
About Love’s Travel Stop in Arkansas
The new Love’s truck stop location is in Lake Village, Ark. just across the border to Greenville, Mississippi. This strategic southeastern Arkansas location is also just north of Louisiana and the cities of Oak Grove and Lake Providence. The truck stop is situated at Highway 82 and Highway 65 for the convenience of OTR truck drivers trying to get to the expansive travel stop. The truck stop makes the 14th Love’s in the state of Arkansas.
Truck drivers will be happy to find 52 truck parking spaces without reservations required at the travel stop. In addition, there is a Chester’s Chicken deli counter and Petro’s Chili and Chips. Here the doors will be open 24 hours a day seven days a week. As for fuel, there are four diesel lanes for truck drivers, as well as a CAT scale for weighing your load.
Love’s founder and executive chairman Tom Love said the following about the new truck stop location. “We’re excited to add a second location in Arkansas in as many weeks. We look forward to providing drivers, as well as residents, with the ‘Clean Places, Friendly Faces’ that Love’s is known for at our Lake Village location.”
How to Find Love’s Near You
To find other Love’s Travel Stops locations when you are out on the road, consider the Love’s Connect App. This app is available for truck drivers on iOS and Android devices and it’s free to download. The app allows you to do a few things over the road. For starters, you can find local Love’s Travel Stops locations when you are OTR. Look up truck stop locations by city/state, zip code, highway, or even store number if you know it. You can also check into the trucker showers before you even park your big rig. This is a great time saver.
The biggest time saver with the app is the ability to purchase commercial fuel including diesel using your fuel card number or a Start Code. Get your pump going while you wait in line. You can also use this as a way to store your purchase history. Pull it up to double-check your data when reviewing your e-log records or making edits on your e-logs. By going ahead and paying at the pump you also save time from having to leave and go into the store. This is a huge benefit especially when you are already crunched for time or there is bad weather.
