Thorntons, a new gas station and convenience store, will open Dec. 30 in Largo, according to company spokeswoman Erin Jones.
Construction crews continue to work on the store at the northeast corner of the intersection of Ulmerton and Starkey roads.
The Largo Thorntons is part of the planned expansion of the chain into the Tampa Bay market. Thorntons has 166 locations in Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee.
Thorntons is known for its wide selection of fountain drinks where customers can add a choice of flavor shots and choose different types of ice.
Thorntons is one of a few new gas stations planned currently around Largo.
A Wawa is planned for the southeast corner of the intersection of Ulmerton and Starkey roads, which is diagonally across the street from the Thorntons.
A new 7-Eleven is expected to open in December at the busy corner of East Bay Drive and North Missouri Avenue.
