WICHITA — The Dillons at Central and West is the latest in the chain to be getting a fuel center.
“Those excess buildings have been removed,” says spokeswoman Sheila Lowrie of buildings adjacent to the store.
The 10-pump fuel center will be in the southwest corner of the property and face West Street.
Dillons is finishing renovations to the store there as well. There will be a grand opening for both later this summer.
The new Dillons under construction at Harry and Edgemoor also will have a fuel center, this one with 12 pumps. The entire project should be complete by the end of the year.
“We’ve had quite a few projects here recently and in the past five years,” Lowrie says.
That includes new fuel centers at 13th and West streets, 13th and Maize Road and one in Augusta.
It looked like a fuel center was coming to 21st and Amidon, but Lowrie says that’s not the case — at least not now.
“For us, fuel is very important,” she says.
Lowrie says Dillons will continue to add centers “where it makes sense for our customers.”
