MARTIN’S FIRST RICHMOND AREA FUEL STATION TO OPEN APRIL 18

Richmond, VA – Richmond’s brand new MARTIN’S Food Market fuel station will open for business on Wednesday, April 18 at 8 a.m. The new fuel station is located in the parking lot of the MARTIN’S Westpark store at 9645 West Broad Street.

“This is MARTIN’S first fuel station in the Richmond area and we are excited to showcase to our customers the great combination of value we provide both inside our stores and outside at our gas pumps,” said Jim Scanlon, regional vice president.

The fuel station will have eight pumps, each with a Pay-at-the-Pump feature. For customer convenience, gas mitts to keep hands clean and waterless hand soap, in addition to free air, also will be available. MARTIN’S gift cards can be purchased and redeemed at fuel sites including the new Richmond area fuel station.

“Customers can also take advantage of their fuelperks! rewards right outside the store,” said Charlie Britton, store manager.

Using their BonusCard, customers can save $1.00 or more off per gallon by earning fuelperks! rewards. For every $100 spent on grocery and pharmacy out-of-pocket expenses at any MARTIN’S using a Bonuscard, customers will receive ten cents off per gallon of gas when they fill up as part of the fuelperks! promotion program.
