What's new: The store, at 400 NW Frontage Road off I-84 at Exit 17, now features 44 parking spaces specifically for trucks, freshly prepared Chester’s Fried Chicken, shower facilities, and a CAT Scale among other services.

  • Drivers can also make use of the Tire Pass In-Service Center and Freightliner ExpressPoint.
  • Laundry facilities add to the convenience for truckers on the road.

Expansion plans: Love's aims to open between 20 and 25 new stores throughout 2024. This would create 1500 to 2000 additional truck parking spaces within their network.

  • Alongside the new openings, 35 to 40 older stores will be renovated.
  • Notably, four of these will undergo a similar tear-down and rebuild process as seen in Troutdale.
