NEW PALESTINE, Ind. -- Ricker’s convenience stores opened the doors to its newest location on Aug. 28 in New Palestine, Ind. The location is the first flagship store of its kind for the c-store chain.
“We’ve been developing this store design for three years,” President and CEO Quinn Ricker said. “It’s an open and modern floorplan that features floor-to-ceiling glass windows and a sit-down dining area. This is just the first of many Ricker’s locations that will follow this design.”

Gasoline is still a high priority at the new location. Ricker’s provides Lucas Oil additives in its premium and diesel fuels to increase power and fuel mileage and lower exhaust emissions. It also has tax-exempt diesel islands for trucks to refuel. Additionally, the store provides ethanol-free premium with Lucas Oil fuel treatment.
Ricker’s is planning to open its next c-store with the new design in Whitestown, Ind. It is now under construction.
