PS Food Mart Opens 31st Store
WILLIAMSTON, Mich. -- PS Food Mart opened its 30st store here. Located at 420 E. Grand River in Williamston, the location offers CITGO fuels and a range of food and beverages. It is managed by Williamston native, Mike Crittenden, and backed by Michigan-based fuel supplier Folk Oil.
"We are very excited to expand our footprint into Williamston and provide consumers with the high level of service and community involvement expected from PS Food Mart Stores," said Jim Linton, the company's vice president. "This new location, like all PS Food Mart Stores, is designed with our customers in mind. Not only do we have great products and services, but local employees will also give back to Williamston charities through our PS Food Mart Charities fundraising programs."
Year round, the new Williamston PS Food Mart will offer three dispensers of CITGO fuel, including diesel, as well as a convenience store stocked with products such as Java Peak Coffee, a beer cave boasting the coldest beer in town, Big Chill Zone fountain drinks and clean bathrooms.
The store also will participate in fundraising programs to raise money for Williamston Food Bank Inc. and other local charities. Both PS Food Mart and CITGO have a history of supporting those in need. In the first four months of this year, PS Food Mart raised more than $60,000 for food banks across Michigan and Ohio, while CITGO is the largest corporate supporter of the Muscular Dystrophy Association and rewards local heroes who are doing good deeds in their own communities through its Fueling Good program.
"I grew up in Williamston and I am excited to be back working in such an outstanding community," Crittenden said. "I know the importance of value and quality and giving back. Those are the principles we will follow at this new PS Food Mart CITGO location."
The new Williamston PS Food Mart joins the network of 30 PS Food Mart Stores across south central Michigan and northwest Ohio, as well as the more than 6,000 locally owned CITGO stations across 27 states and the District of Columbia.
