SARTELL -- Another Kwik Trip is looking to build in the area, this time in Sartell.

Planning and Community Development Director Anita Rasmussen says the convenience store wants to build a 9,000 square foot gas station and car wash on the site near the intersection of County Road 78 and 2nd Street South, next to Sartell Pediatrics.

During tonight's (Tuesday) Sartell Planning Commission meeting, the board will look to approve a Conditional Use Permit for the building.

Because of zoning requirements on the site a CUP needs to be approved for the car wash to be built.

If the request is approved by the Planning Commission, a public hearing would need to be held before final action is taken by the City Council, which should happen at their next scheduled meeting.

Rasmussen says Kwik Trip hopes to be in operation by the end of 2016.

This would be the fourth Kwik Trip store in the St. Cloud Metro area. Kwik Trip plans to open two stores in St. Cloud and one in Waite Park within the next year.
