Sonic Construction Continues, Jordan's Kwik Stop Closes

Thursday, August 17, 2017
Foundation work is well-underway for the new Sonic Restaurant in Piggott, located at the corner of East Main and Thornton Avenue. On the other hand, the Jordan's Kwik Stop located in the background has closed its doors after many years in operation.

With construction now underway on the new Sonic Restaurant in Piggott, another long-time business located next door has closed its doors. Late last week the Jordan's Kwik Stop, at 360 East Main Street, closed for business. On Monday, the sign had been taken down and merchandise was being removed from the store.

A call to Jordan's Kwik Stop corporate headquarters, in Harrisburg, on Tuesday was not returned.

The site was first home to the Marine Station, built in the late 1960s. Later, the current building was constructed and the effort flourished at the location under various owners.

In recent years the local business lost its Subway franchise, and competition from other convenience stores such as Casey's and Circle K adversly impacted the location.

Jordan's Kwik Stop, Inc., was founded in 2002 and in the years since has boasted as many as 45 locations.
