(The County of Bland, Virginia) – Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores has announced plans to open a new travel stop at Interstate 77, Exit 58, in Bastian. The new location will bring approximately 40-60 new jobs to Bland County.

The new travel stop will be open 24/7 and feature name-brand snacks, fresh fruit, gourmet coffee, an expanded fountain drink selection, gift merchandise and Chester’s and McDonald’s restaurants. Professional truck drivers can take advantage of showers, truck parking and a Love’s Truck Tire Care Center.
“Bland County is an ideal location for Love’s because it fits in well with other locations in the area,” said Kealey Dorian, communications specialist for Love’s Travel Stops. “It has a solid community base and its proximity to Interstate 77 will allow us to serve leisure travelers and professional drivers, as well as local residents.”
