Parker’s has opened a new location, just in time for the company’s 40th anniversary. The company expects to open four more locations in the coming months.
Bluffton, S.C. is now home to the 42nd Parker’s retail location.
The company’s sixth Bluffton, S.C. store, located on the Buckwalter Parkway at 8251 Pinellas Dr., sells high-quality Parker’s gas, the company’s signature Chewy Ice, fountain drinks, fresh-brewed tea and lemonade, gourmet coffee, locally grown fresh-cut fruit, salads, 28-degree beer, vape products, cell phone accessories and much more.
“This latest store is a response to growing customer demand in Bluffton,” said Greg Parker, company president and CEO. “Bluffton has proven to be a major growth market for Parker’s. Our Beaufort County customers are incredibly loyal and appreciate our commitment to quality, convenience and customer service.”
Parker’s currently operates South Carolina locations in Bluffton, Port Royal, Okatie, Hardeeville and Pritchardville. The new Bluffton store is managed and staffed by experienced members of the Parker’s team, all of whom share a commitment to delivering high-quality customer service.
“Fast, fresh and friendly is more than just a motto at Parker’s,” said Parker. “It truly is a promise we make to our customers each and every day.”
The Bluffton, S.C. location offered 12-cent discounts on gas for PumpPal loyalty club members as part of a company-wide holiday “thank you” to customers through Dec. 25.
Bluffton customers can choose the Parker’s Cash Card or PumpPal Card, both of which offer savings of up to 10 cents a gallon at the pump. Area residents can pick up a Cash Card or a PumpPal card at any Parker’s location to start saving.
Founded in 1976, Parker’s has earned accolades for its PumpPal program, which offers deep discounts on gas and has saved customers more than $5 million since its inception. Today, the PumpPal program has more than 100,000 members throughout Georgia and South Carolina. The company also launched a Parker’s Cash Card earlier this year, which has also enjoyed tremendous success.
Parker’s currently operates 42 convenience stores across the region and employs nearly 500 individuals throughout Georgia and South Carolina. The company, which completes more than 80,000 transactions daily, will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2016.
The company opened a new store in Hardeeville, S.C. earlier this month. Over the next several months, Parker’s plans to open new locations in Hilton Head Island, S.C.; Claxton, Ga.; Okatie, S.C. and Statesboro, Ga.
