Convenience store opens in Statesboro
November 6, 2013 by Max
One of the fastest growing firms in the U.S. has opened a new store in Statesboro, with the firm’s chief eager to help local folks benefit from low prices.
The official unveiling of the Parker‘s store was marked by a ribbon cutting ceremony by mayor Brannen in October. Helping the mayor were the chair of Statesboro-Bulloch Chamber of Commerce, Keely Fennell, and Carolyn Ethridge, the Bulloch County Commissioner.
It is the third Parker’s in the county, and takes up a prime location at 11012 Hwy 301 South.
Taking up 3,200 sq. ft. of retail space, it is a state of the art affair. With much poster printing and banner printing likely to be in evidence, patrons can enjoy a drinks fountain serving up iced tea, gourmet coffees and a host of frozen drinks.
Parker’s popular Chewy Ice is also available, along with 28-degree beer.
Perhaps most famously though, it will be the low gasoline prices that will really attract the crowds, with president and CEO of the firm, Greg Parker, saying:
“The demand for Parker’s in Bulloch County has been strong, so we’re delighted to open our latest store right here in Statesboro.
“We’re thrilled to help lower gas prices in the area while giving back to area schools through our Fueling the Community program. We look forward to being part of the Statesboro community for many years to come.”
Parker was referring to the firm’s PumpPal program. With up to a 10 cent discount on each gallon of fuel, the firm has reportedly saved its customers over $3 million in the two and a half years since it started.
