Parker’s has opened a new state-of-the-art store in Garden City, Ga. in response to customer demand.
The 28th Parker’s location, located at 4219 Augusta Rd., features discounted gasoline as well as nearly 4,000 square feet of retail space. Like all other Parker’s retail locations, the Garden City store offers PumpPal members a 10-cent discount per gallon of gasoline purchased through Dec. 31, 2012. The Garden City store also features signature Parker’s items like a gourmet coffee bar, fountain drinks with Chewy Ice, fresh-brewed iced tea, snacks and more.

The company’s PumpPal program, which offers discounts of up to 10 cents on every gallon of gas purchased, has saved customers nearly $2 million since the program first launched in February of 2011. Today, the PumpPal program has nearly 57,000 members throughout Georgia and South Carolina.
Parker’s also offer its 1-Cent Wednesday ‘Fueling the Community’ program at the new Garden City location. 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.
