Circle K in Jonesboro Temporarily Closed

The Coronavirus has taken another victim. This time it is not a person that has been lost to Jackson Parish residents but instead a key place of business. On Wednesday, May 6th, the Circle K convenient store located on the corner of Hwy 4 and Hwy 167 shuttered their doors closing one of the few retail combination gas station/store in Jonesboro.

This marks the 28th store of the nationwide chain that has been forced to close during the epidemic and the fourth in the state of Louisiana. Attempts to contact the Louisiana regional headquarters were unsuccessful but in a note provided on the Circle K website by CEO Brian Hannasch it was stated that the intent is to re-open all the closed stores once the danger of spreading the Coronavirus has passed.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I didn’t know what had happened to our Circle K but I’m glad to know they plan to re-open. One thing Jonesboro doesn’t need is another permanently closed business.

    • Lord I hope they don’t close…I will have to go to Winnfield, which is much higher, or to west Monroe. Which I’m good and don’t.want to go there either. Liz Howell

  2. Supposed to return to normal schedule this Friday. They are quarantined right now as one of the workers is said to have Covid-19.

    • The Circle K has re-opened as of last Friday 5.15.20. I’m not sure of the details but I’ve been told they closed temporarily for a few days because someone who worked there tested positive for the Corona Virus.
