New Parker’s Convenience Store features a design inspired by Lowcountry vernacular architecture and a full-service Parker’s Kitchen.
Parker’s has officially opened its newest retail location on St. Helena Island, S.C., offering fresh, Southern-inspired food, friendly customer service and competitively priced fuel for customers throughout the region.
The architectural design of the company’s 53rd store, located at 856 Sea Island Pkwy, was developed with sensitivity and respect for the historic character of St. Helena Island.
“We took a dilapidated, metal-sided building and replaced it with a beautiful new convenience store defined by inspired Lowcountry vernacular architecture,” said Parker’s President and CEO Greg Parker. “We are incredibly honored to be part of the St. Helena Island community.”
The new location features a full-service Parker’s Kitchen with extended food service hours from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week. Customers can enjoy fresh Southern Fried Chicken Tenders made from scratch daily as well as a full breakfast bar, daily specials, family meal deals, sandwiches and cookies.
The new Parker’s store on St. Helena Island, which is the company’s 15th location in South Carolina and 13th store in Beaufort County, offers a full selection of signature Parker’s amenities, including:
- Parker’s Kitchen, serving fresh Southern comfort food made from scratch with high-quality ingredients
- A wide selection of fountain drinks with Chewy Ice
- Fresh-brewed iced tea and lemonade
- Bean-to-Cup Guaranteed Fresh Coffee
- 28-degree beer, including a selection of popular craft beers
- Spotless restrooms
- Regular, Mid, Premium, Diesel and Marine fuel
- Exceptional customer service
“Our newest Parker’s location will serve the northern Beaufort County barrier island communities of St. Helena, Frogmore, Dataw Island, Hunting Island and Fripp Island, providing customers with the full Parker’s experience,” said Parker. “We want to bring our Fast, Fresh and Friendly service to the areas in and around St. Helena Island.”
Parker’s recently donated $25,000 to Beaufort County Schools as part of the company’s Fueling the Community charitable initiative, which gives a portion of gas sold on the first Wednesday of each month to area schools. Parker’s has donated nearly $1 million to area schools since the inception of the Fueling the Community program in 2011 and has a commitment to giving back to every community where the company operates retail stores.
