Community and company leaders along with customers packed the new Kwik Trip in Superior Wednesday for a grand opening celebration.

"It's been busy since we opened and it hasn't stopped," Manager Dana Terry said. "This is a typical day. There's moments where every spot is filled and you might have to park in another parking lot."

The Tower Avenue store is the first of eight stores opening this year. After the Nemadji Travel Plaza location opens, there will be a new Kwik Trip opening every two weeks in the Twin Ports.

"It is awesome," customer Diana Cooke said. "It is really, really nice."

Workers said the good deals and fresh food keep customers happy.

"I have the grand opening coupons," Cooke said.

During a ribbon cutting ceremony, Kwik Trip workers said the company goes through 2.5 million donuts a week. All their bakery and dairy items are trucked up fresh from La Crosse, Wis. daily.

Customers were also excited about no curbs surrounding the store for easy access for people with disabilities.

After the new stores open this year, there are plans for more stores in 2015 and 2016 in the area.
