A hair styling shop in a truck stop might sound unusual but Petro truck stops around the nation often have one inside their “stopping centers” that are part of the firm’s 70 nationwide truck stop complexes.

Petro truck stops typically offer numerous services, including gasoline, oil changes, restaurant, a 5,000-item travel store, private showers, and a huge parking lot for more than 200 trucks.
