The QuikTrip was completely destroyed during the rioting and looting.

Ferguson protesters later warned local business owners to rebuild:
“Or it’s gonna be hell to pay”

On Wednesday, Missouri State Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson told reporters the QuikTrip convenience store that burned down would rebuild in Ferguson.

Not True.
QuikTrip has no plans to rebuild in Ferguson, Missouri. A QuikTrip representative wrote The Gateway Pundit on Friday in response to Captain Johnson’s comments,

“Thank you for asking. It is not accurate. QuikTrip has not made a decision in regards to the store in Ferguson.

On August 19, 2014, the gas was removed from the tanks at the Ferguson QuikTrip.
This was another sign that the QuikTrip in Ferguson will not rebuild.
