The Parker Cos., which offers fuel and retail services across southeast Georgia and South Carolina, has opened a new state-of-the-art convenience store in Bluffton, S.C.
The newest Parker’s store, located at 1286 Fording Island Road just east of Tanger Outlet Center 1 on Hwy. 278, offers discounted gasoline as well as nearly 4,000 square feet of retail space.
“We are the low price leader and are committed to delivering exceptional customer service at all of our stores,” said Greg Parker, president and CEO of The Parker Companies. “With our PumpPal program, we save customers up to 10 cents per gallon every day, keeping gas prices low throughout the Bluffton area.”
Parker’s also offers a 1-Cent Wednesdays ‘Fueling the Community’ program at all of the company’s stores. On the first Wednesday of every month, Parker’s sets aside one cent of every gallon of gas purchased to donate back to community schools. The company donated $2,500 to four Bluffton-area public schools in December of 2011.
Parker’s also operates three additional locations in Beaufort County at 9227 Evan Way, 469 Buckwalter Place and 2 Gateway Village. The company has future plans to open convenience stores on Hilton Head Island and in Beaufort.
Parker’s currently operates 27 convenience stores across the region and plans to open additional stores in Chatham, Liberty, Effingham, Bulloch, Jasper and Beaufort counties.
