On Friday, February 19th, we held our grand opening celebration at our newest location in Claxton, Georgia. It felt like the whole town was there to support us! We are so flattered by the warm welcome we’ve received from our new neighbors.
Since we’re new in town, we thought we should bring a gift. On behalf of our Fueling the Community program, which raises money for local schools and medical centers, we presented a check to Evans County Schools for $2,000.00.
“At Parker’s we believe in giving back to every community where we do business,” said Greg Parker, company president and CEO. “We understand that education opens doors and provides opportunities in Evans County. We’re deeply honored to support schools and strengthen communities through our Fueling the Community Program.”
Claxton has a charming, small town quality that feels like home, which is why it’s the perfect place for our new community-oriented store. This is the first of our stores to offer a deli and a drive-thru. Enjoy our finger-lickin’ fried chicken and perfectly sweet southern iced tea at our in-store dining tables, while you chat with your neighbors and make some new friends. Dash into our drive-thru for snacks and frozen drinks for the kids after school.
Opening this store has been a wonderful experience, and we can’t thank the residents of Claxton enough for their southern hospitality.
