Parker’s has now been included in Savannah Magazine’s “Best of Savannah” issue four years in a row.
For the fourth consecutive year, Savannah, Ga.-based Parker’s has been voted the Best Convenience Store by Savannah Magazine readers. The honor was announced in the magazine’s September/October 2016 “Best of Savannah” issue.
“Earning this recognition from our customers is the ultimate honor,” said Parker’s CEO Greg Parker. “Every day, we focus on exceeding our customers’ expectations, from our state-of-the-art store designs and popular hot deli to our first-class customer service and signature Chewy Ice. We’re truly humbled to receive such a meaningful endorsement from our loyal customers.”
Parker’s has previously been honored as the Best Convenience Store by readers of the Savannah Morning News, Bryan County Now, Statesboro Herald and the Island Packet. The convenience store company has also earned the title of “Most Fab Convenience Store” from the Effingham Herald in Rincon, Ga., and been recognized with a Keep Liberty Beautiful Award by the Coastal Courier in Hinesville, Ga.
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, Ga.
Founded in 1976, Parker’s has earned accolades for its PumpPal program, which offers deep discounts on gas and has saved customers more than $7 million since its inception. Today, the PumpPal program has more than 130,000 members throughout Georgia and South Carolina.
Parker’s has been ranked on Inc.’s elite list of the top 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. for four consecutive years and recently earned the Regional Economic Impact Award from the Bluffton Chamber of Commerce.
