Richmond, VA – The Richmond area’s latest MARTIN’S Food Market fuel stations opened for business today, Wednesday, August 29. The new two fuel stations are located in the parking lots of MARTIN’S Stratford Hills store at 7045 Forest Hill Avenue in Richmond and MARTIN’S Harbour Pointe store at 13700 Hull Street Road in Midlothian.

“Wednesday’s grand openings will mark the second and third MARTIN’S fuel stations to open in the greater Richmond community,” said Jim Scanlon, regional vice president. “Customers will have the convenience of filling their grocery carts and gas tanks with one stop, in addition to taking advantage of their fuelperks! rewards right outside of the store that they shop.”

Each fuel station will have ten 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 both new stores and MARTIN’S Westpark fuel station at 9645 West Broad Street.

Using their BonusCard, customers can save per gallon of gas 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. Customers can accumulate and redeem their fuelperks! points even up to a full tank of gas.
