We’ve been getting a lot of questions about the work being done at the Tramway Exxon/Circle K store across from the Food Lion shopping center, and now we’ve got an answer for you.

According to the Sanford/Lee County Planning Department’s website, a permit was issued in July to construct a “new Circle K convenience store” at the location. We’ve heard some talk about the new gas station being something called a “mega store,” and while we haven’t been able to explicitly confirm that, the permit calls for a nearly 5,000 square foot building on the site.

The former location was just 600 square feet, for comparison.

We don’t have any information about when the new Circle K will open, but work appears to be moving fast.
