SALT LAKE CITY—Maverick—Adventure's First Stop announced it has opened its 400th store in Magna, Utah.
“Celebrating an important milestone for Maverik and its nearly 7,000 team members, the opening marks Maverik’s commitment to serving even more customers across the Intermountain West and being a Great Growth Company,” Maverik wrote in a statement.
The opening of the Magna location was celebrated with a rope-cutting, speakers, festivities and giveaways, as well as a $10,000 donation to Magna FACT, which helps Magna-area families and individuals with everyday needs such as food, clothing, personal hygiene and other social services.
“Since Maverik’s first stores opened in Utah in the late 1950s, Maverik has become a statewide standard in convenience, employer of choice and strong community partner, now operating 175 stores across Utah,” Mayor of Magna Dan Peay told community members at the opening of the location. “We’re thrilled to commemorate its 400th store in our close Magna community.”
The Magna location is open 24/7 and is just over 5,000 square feet. The location features certified truck scales, truck and RV lanes, an RV dump, picnic area, assisted-checkout registers and a full lineup of fresh made-to-order food offerings.
Maverik will serve guests heading to nearby outdoor activities and attractions like the Great Salt Lake and Saltair entertainment venue along with those traveling to and between Salt Lake and Tooele. Customers will experience the feel of adventure inside the store with panoramic photos and maps of Utah’s outdoor destinations on the walls, alongside exciting adventure videos playing on TVs, gas pumps and soda fountains. Maverik focuses on a “Clean and Clear” shopping experience with well-stocked, uncluttered aisles that are well-lit and open.
Maverik is dedicated to giving back to areas where it operates. Last year, Maverik donated more than $470,000 to Feeding America to help support food banks across its 12 operating states in addition to donating over 420,000 meals through recovering more than 500,000 pounds of surplus food through its food waste reduction program.
