SALT LAKE CITY — Maverik — Adventure's First Stop is ready to help guests gear up for their next adventure with the opening of its 400th convenience store.
Located at 2435 S 8000 W in Magna, Utah, the 5,000-square-foot c-store is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will serve the needs of Magna residents and travelers with a full lineup of fresh made-to-order food offerings, certified truck scales, truck and RV lanes, an RV dump, a picnic area and assisted-checkout registers.
"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," said Magna Mayor Dan Peay at the store's grand opening event. "We're thrilled to commemorate its 400th store in our close Magna community."
Maverik's premium BonFire food will be available made to order, including burritos, tacos, quesadillas, sandwiches, salads and pizza. Additionally, the retailer's newest bean-to-cup coffee program highlights coffee blends from around the world, accompanied by a collection of pastries.
Customers will capture the feel of adventure inside the store with panoramic photos and maps of Utah's outdoor destinations on the walls, alongside 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, the company stated.
The c-store retailer 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.
In addition to Peay, guests for the rope cutting ceremony during the grand opening included:
Salt Lake County Councilman David Alvord
