SPRING HOPE — A Duck Thru convenience store will join Bojangles at the U.S. 64 exit to Spring Hope.

"People can pull in for gas and grab a biscuit," said Buddy Laws, director of brand implementation for the Raleigh-based Capital Sign Solutions.

Laws attended the most recent meeting of the Spring Hope Board of Commissioners where he successfully petitioned for a special use permit for a taller sign to move forward with at least a 75 foot tall pole and 400 square foot sign that will be shared between Duck Thru and Bojangles.

Duck Thru is a full service convenience store equipped with a deli or grill, selling Shell gasoline. Duck Thru has more than 50 locations throughout southside Virginia and northeast North Carolina.

The nearest Duck Thru to Spring Hope is located in Pinetops.

"They really want to be here," Laws said of Duck Thru owners. Duck Thru is a subsidiary of Jernigan Oil Company, a family-owned petroleum products distributor based in Ahoskie.

Laws estimated that it will be about a year before the store opens. The business is currently securing building permits and doing site work for its underground fuel tanks.

Once placed, the two-panel sign will be visible from a mile down the highway, internally lighted and in compliance with all of the county's set back rules, according to information submitted to the town board by Laws.

The parking lot for the businesses is geared toward truck drivers with 30 spaces for 18-wheelers.
