One randomly selected Parker’s customer has received a free Jeep Renegade that sports the Parker’s logo.
In celebration of the company’s 40th anniversary, Parker’s has given away a free Jeep Renegade to one lucky customer.
At the company’s Garden City, Ga. store, Parker’s CEO Greg Parker presented the keys to a white Jeep emblazoned with the Parker’s logo to Tina Leggett, a Savannah woman who works at Memorial Health University Medical Center.
“It’s mine,” she laughed before she got behind the wheel. “Nobody’s taking it.”
Leggett’s name was chosen at random from entries by the general public as well as by more than 130,000 Pump Pal Club members who were entered into the anniversary giveaway every time they used their cards at Parker’s. There were more than four million PumpPal transactions during the four-month anniversary celebration.
Leggett said she was delighted to win the Jeep Renegade because she had already given her own car to her teenage daughter and was driving what she called “a clunker.”
“I was just shocked and overwhelmed,” she said of winning the grand prize. “And thankful, really.”
The Jeep giveaway was part of Parker’s celebrating 40 years in business. Throughout the summer, the company offered a wide range of anniversary specials for customers in Georgia and South Carolina.
“We wanted to celebrate our landmark anniversary with our customers,” said Parker’s CEO Greg Parker. “It’s a real thrill to give away a new Jeep Renegade to one of our loyal PumpPal members. I can’t think of anyone more deserving than Tina.”
In addition to delivering exceptional products and services, Parker’s is considered an industry leader for its Fueling the Community program, which gives back a portion of every gallon of gas sold on the first Wednesday of each month to schools across Georgia and South Carolina and to the Parker’s Emergency and Trauma Center at Memorial Hospital in Savannah.
