Thorntons is coming soon to Largo, according to a sign on the property.
The 3,000- to 4,000-square-foot gas station is under construction on the site of a now demolished night club at the intersection of Ulmerton and Starkey roads.
The Largo Thorntons is part of the planned expansion of the gas and convenience stores into the Tampa Bay market.
The first area store is expected to open this fall in Clearwater. Fifteen to 20 stores are planned for the greater Tampa Bay area in the next three years, according to the Thorntons website.
