Posted on January 15, 2013 Category: Articles
NOCO Express, a family-owned and operated convenience store chain in western New York, recently opened its newest and largest store in the company's 80 year history, according to CSPnet. The 6,000-square-foot store, located in Lancaster, features extensive food options, a boutique travel center and three commercial diesel fueling stations. Additionally, the store features various environmentally friendly features including LED lighting.
"We've come a long way in evolving our current convenience store model from the first store we opened in 1984," Michael F. Newman, the executive vice president of NOCO, told the news source. "As NOCO celebrates its 80th anniversary, we are proud to open the largest NOCO Express in our portfolio; it's also the first store that offers a variety of features to meet the needs of both our on-the-go customers and commercial truck drivers."
On-the-go customers will have their choice of several meal options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A 24-hour Tim Hortons offers coffee, specialty beverages, sandwiches and baked goods, as well as a drive-thru option. Meanwhile, the inside of the store features a Subway and a cafe-like seating area with free Wi-Fi, the news source reports. Meanwhile, the various fueling stations, including a bulk exhaust fluid fueling system, provide numerous options for truck drivers.
In a bid to combat the environmental degradation brought upon by excessive fueling, the store's owners have installed several key environmentally friendly features, including low-wattage LED lights. In addition, the store features a refrigeration energy management system, white roofing for increased light reflectivity and an energy management control system.
On top of all the various energy efficiency features, the LED lights at the gas station and convenience store could be a tremendous asset. According to ENERGY STAR, these bulb types use at least 75 percent less energy, while lasting between 35 to 50 times longer, than traditional incandescent bulbs.
