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.
