CAPE COD, Mass. -- Like many operators across the nation, Christy’s of Cape Cod announced it will offer a new gasoline discount promotion, which will be combined with an existing Stop & Shop program nearing completion.
CSNews Online could not reach owner Christy Mihos, who operates 13 locations on Cape Cod, for comment.
Mihos told Cape Cod Today that the test promotion will officially kick off Saturday at its Falmouth location with customers receiving a 10 cent discount when paying cash.
Customers who have a valid Stop & Shop coupon, which offers a discount of 20 cents per gallon, are entitled to receive the Christy’s cash discount, which equates to a savings of 30 cents per gallon.
While Stop & Shop has been running the program with Christy’s for the past year, it will soon come to an end which has customers upset. In total, more than 250,000 of the discount coupons were redeemed during the promotion. The two companies split the cost of the program, which came to $60,000 a week, the paper reported.
"If it goes well, we roll it out next Friday in all stores," Mihos told the paper. "Now, if the Stop & Shop customers make their voices heard and for whatever reason Stop & Shop continues the 20-cents-off promotion, then Cape customers will get a real prize."
