MAPCO celebrated the opening of a new convenience store at 3000 Pelham Parkway, and the chain’s first location in Pelham, Ala., with an official ribbon-cutting on April 18.
The new 5,500 square-foot store is designed to offer a ‘Better Break’ for guests with MAPCO’s new ‘Store of the Future’ design, featuring an efficient layout and modern details.
As part of MAPCO’s ongoing commitment to the communities it serves, the company also donated $1,000 to Pelham Park Middle School in celebration of the store to support local students. MAPCO’s donation will help fund the Pelham Panther’s Athletic Department.
MAPCO representatives and community leaders were in attendance at the grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony alongside the store team. MAPCO company executives – including Frederic Chaveyriat, CEO; Amanda Davis, chief people & culture officer; Keith Slater, chief financial officer; and Tom Bowden, chief marketing officer – were in attendance alongside city officials and community leaders such as Pelham Mayor Gary Waters; Shelby County Chamber of Commerce’s Kirk Mancer, president & CEO; Jordan Powell, vice president of Investor Relations; Julie Gardner, director of Community & Career Development; and Kevin Finch, principal, of Pelham Park Middle School.
