SAVANNAH, Ga. — Enmarket cut the ribbon on a newly rebuilt and expanded convenience store in Savannah, Ga., in late July. The company renovated the location to integrate its appearance into the surrounding historic district.

“This is a one-of-a-kind location for Enmarket,” said Brett Giesick, president of Enmarket. “A diverse customer base of downtown residents, commuters, local businesses, SCAD [Savannah College of Art and Design] students and faculty and tourists were all carefully considered when we selected this store design and the products and services that this location offers.”
The rebuilt outlet is accessible to trolleys and other vehicles critical to Savannah’s downtown tourism industry and features four multiproduct dispensers with gasoline and diesel.
“We are thrilled to unveil this beautiful new store in the historic district,” Giesick said. “The design and concept reflect the direction we are taking in the community, which is to provide a more modern, customer-friendly store with a dual focus on pedestrian and automobile traffic.”
The design of the new, 3,522-square-foot convenience store drew from the site’s transportation-related history because of its proximity to the Central of Georgia Railway and Georgia State Railroad Museum. Enmarket contracted with a local artist to design and paint a community-themed mural on one of the exterior walls.
The location also includes the chain’s proprietary kitchen concept, The Eatery, featuring its signature breakfast biscuits and antibiotic-free, never-frozen chicken. Fresh grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, parfaits and more are prepared on-site.
The nontraditional design also includes an outdoor dining patio, a green space and a bike service area.
Founded as Interstate Stations by Robert Demere in 1963, Enmarket is part of Savannah-based Colonial Group Inc. The chain employs more than 1,200 people and operates 124 c-stores and 14 quick-service restaurants in in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
