Effingham County Chamber of Commerce representatives helped cut the ribbon Tuesday to celebrate the grand opening of a new Parker’s convenience store in Faulkville.
Located at 3050 Highway 80, the state-of-the-art store is the fourth Parker’s location in Effingham County. Parker’s currently employs more than 400 people throughout Georgia and South Carolina.
“The demand for Parker’s is strong in Effingham County,” said Greg Parker, president and CEO of the Parker Companies. “We responded to customer requests for a Parker’s in this location and are pleased with the response from the local community.”
Parker’s features its One-Cent Wednesday Fueling the Community program at the Faulkville location. On the first Wednesday of every month, Parker’s sets aside one cent of every gallon of gas purchased to donate back to local schools. PumpPal members can designate which Effingham County school they would like their donation to benefit.
Parker’s currently operates 32 convenience stores across the region and plans to open additional locations in Effingham, Chatham, Bryan, Liberty, Bulloch, Jasper and Beaufort counties.
