WILMINGTON — A growing development on the southern end of the county will get a new fuel station and convenience store.

Charleston, South Carolina-based Refuel is scheduled to open in 7Bridge, a 120-acre, mixed-use community of Riverlights. It’s slated to open by the end of 2024.

Nick Cassala, vice president of operations for Riverlights, said in a press release the addition of Refuel fits 7Bridge’s mixed-use neighborhood, aimed to be pedestrian-friendly. The store ensures everyday needs are elevated for nearby neighbors, he added.

According to Riverlights, businesses located in 7Bridge — which could be anything from medical practices to pet daycare — will serve roughly 14,000 existing residences within 3 miles. In addition to 7Bridge’s offices, restaurants and retail, multiple residential projects will be included: a new luxury apartment complex, Argento; the single-family-for-rent neighborhood, The Cottages; and a senior living campus, Luminance.

It will be the first Refuel in Wilmington, with a groundbreaking planned for late 2023. Across the bridge in Leland, Refuel opened in the last few months. The chain — known for its friend chicken and pulled pork sandwiches — has more than 200 stores in the South, from Mississippi to Texas, Arkansas to South Carolina.

The fuel center’s announcement comes the year of multiple competing chains also coming to Wilmington, including Wawa, Sheetz, 7-11 and Royal Farms.
