Yesway, one of the country’s fastest growing convenience store chains, recently hosted the grand opening celebration of its newest Allsup’s Market, located at 1402 E Highway 84 in Slaton, Texas.
This is the third Allsup’s Market concept store the company has opened since acquiring the Allsup’s Convenience Store chain in 2019. The Slaton Allsup’s Market offers customers an expanded selection of grocery and perishable items, including fresh, never-frozen meat and produce, naturally-produced milk, frozen foods, baby items and much more.
“We are so pleased to be able to bring this new store to the Slaton, Texas community,” said Tom Trkla, chairman and CEO of Yesway. “Our aim with Allsup’s Market is to become the community store of choice not only for the convenience items and fuel our customers expect, but for fresh groceries, fresh meat and quality food, too.”
“It is also important to all of us at Yesway that we support the communities we serve, and in honor of the grand opening we have made a $1,250 donation to the Slaton Independent School District as well as a $1,250 donation to the Mercy Manna Food Bank,” said Trkla.
Customers who joined the grand opening festivities were able to enter for a chance to win one of the giveaway prizes – a 2021 ATV CFMOTO 4×4, a 65-inch Samsung TV, a Monster Energy Wakeboard and a Monster Energy Dorm Mini Fridge or Milk for One Year (52 gallons).
During the grand opening, the new Allsup’s Market store held Great Grocery Giveaways, giving away free groceries every hour, on the hour for two days.
The new Slaton Allsup’s store features a forecourt with 16 fueling positions, a diesel island with three fuel bays and 5,500 square feet of interior merchandising space. Customers visiting this new store, which is open 24 hours per day, will find all of their favorite Allsup’s foods and snacks, a trucker/automotive section, a large selection of Hispanic foods and a Beer Cave, along with amenities including Western Union service, ATM availability, CoinCloud Digital Currency Machine, as well as Allsup’s burritos and other hot foods. Amazon Lockers, Primo Water and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream are soon to come.
