It's been almost 10 months since RaceTrac opened its first new prototype station in Acworth in January. The new design, referred to as RT6K or "RaceTrac of the future" by the Smyrna-based company, makes its way to Smyrna this week.
The new station at 2550 Spring Road will be RaceTrac's 70th store in Georgia and ninth RT6K.
The new store design features 6,000 square feet of space filled with upgrades including indoor and outdoor seating, 10 Swirl World frozen yogurt flavors with more than 40 toppings, a beer cave with 50 plus brands, freshly-brewed teas, frozen beverages and free wireless internet."
A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held this Friday at 10:30 a.m. at the Spring Road location. Smyrna city officials including Mayor Max Bacon, community members and RaceTrac representatives will be present at the event.
