A vacant retail building in a prime Bristol, Va. location is set to become the area’s first Royal Farms convenience store.

The Baltimore-based convenience store and food chain is opening a store on the corner of Euclid Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue at the site of the former Rite Aid pharmacy.

Royal Farms boasts of serving “world famous” chicken from its kitchen, which also serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, according to the company’s website. The chain also sells sandwiches, wraps, all-day breakfasts, snacks, gasoline, and diesel at most locations.

Royal Farms bought the Bristol property last year, according to Mack Chapman, economic development specialist for the city of Bristol, Va., who said he doesn’t know when the facility will open to the public.

The company has stores in other parts of Virginia and in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and West Virginia. Some locations offer car washes, electric vehicle charging stations, beer and wine; however, the equipment planned for the Bristol site has not been announced. Most stores are open 24 hours a day.
