OKLAHOMA CITY, December 8, 2015 – The holiday shopping season is upon us and if your favorite retailer is out of that drone or GPS device that’s so hot this year, or you just want to get in and out quickly, check out the closest Love’s Travel Stop. In addition to the wide variety of toys and gift items found in more than 360 Love’s locations for the holiday season, customers will find an increased selection of electronics and mobile accessories.

"Whether it’s a professional driver traveling cross-country, or a mom taking her kids to and from school, our customers are always moving," said Jon Archard, vice president of sales for Love’s. "We’ve had a wide variety of toys and gifts for years to make holiday shopping convenient. We can meet the increasing needs of our customers by offering small electronics and mobile accessories."
