STEPHENVILLE (August 4, 2015) — Murphy USA is coming to Stephenville.
The popular gas station and convenience store chain has more than 1,300 stores nationwide, and like most Murphy USA locations, the Stephenville store will be based in front of WalMart SuperCenter. This is great news as it will not only provide more jobs but will be extremely convenient for locals needing their services. They pay a lot of attention to customer service too, even giving out rewards to people who fill out their customer satisfaction survey, so they will always get great service whenever they go to the new store.
The Stephenville Chamber of Commerce groundbreaking ceremony was held at the location in the southwest corner of the Walmart SuperCenter grounds on Tuesday, complete with a handful of Murphy USA district managers, Stephenville Mayor Pro Tem Russ McDanel and Stephenville Chamber of Commerce President and Executive Director July Danley putting shovel to earth.
The figurative groundbreaking kicks off Murphy USA’s involvement in the community, but in actuality store construction has already been sailing along. Murphy USA managers estimate the store will be ready to open within 90 days.
Established in 1996, Murphy USA is based out of El Dorado, Ark. and has stores from Virginia to New Mexico with plans to expand to Utah and other states in the next year. Currently, the nearest Murphy USA store open for business in at the Walmart SuperCenter in Granbury.
