WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Kum & Go LC will open a new, 5,000-square-foot convenience store in Bentonville, Ark., on Oct. 25. Kum & Go now has four stores in Bentonville and 42 stores throughout Arkansas.

The retailer is inviting customers to stop by during opening week to enjoy fresh pizza for only $1 a slice.

The company designed the new store to provide fast and friendly service for customers, with a "Go Fresh Market" offering a wide array of freshly made items. Options include made-to-order pizzas, baked goods, and breakfast and deli sandwiches--all prepared daily in Kum & Go's new onsite kitchen.

Outside, a wide array of fuel offerings, including E85, diesel and premium gasoline, gives customers more choices and value at the pump.
