PLEASANTON, Calif.—ExtraMile Convenience Stores (EMCS) will open its 1,000th store with the grand opening of a location in Vernon, Ala. on Dec. 18—its first location in the Southeast. ExtraMile is a joint venture between Cheveron and Jacksons Food Stores.
“When Jacksons and Chevron formed this partnership, the 1,000th location was a distant milestone,” said Paul Casadont, president of EMCS. “Achieving it just a few short years later—including safely navigating a global pandemic—is testament to our people and partners. Thanks to them, our network now comprises 1,000 locations and counting in California, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Utah, and now Alabama with more consumers enjoying our world-class c-store experience, product offerings and service.”
The Alabama location is at a Texaco station owned by MIDTSTATES Petroleum, a 15+-year Chevron fuel marketer with 46 employees that supplies more than 200 convenience stores across Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and Louisiana. The grand opening will include $20,000 worth of giveaways in gasoline, merchandise and prizes.
ExtraMile also donated $2,500 to the Lamar County High School’s band, cheer squad and football and volleyball teams. “We are committed to being a strong and active member of the community,” Casadont said.
