Tom Thumb opens new location in Gulf Shores

Posted

EG Group, one of the fastest growing convenience store retailers in the United States, announced it opened its newest Tom Thumb store at 7074 State Highway 59 in Gulf Shores Tuesday, June 1.

This brand-new store features the company’s latest design, equipment and menu – all of which were created to expand the food choices and enhance the customer experience. In addition to the Tom Thumb convenience store, the location also features a Burger King and Pizza Hut on-site, offering expanded options for guests to enjoy.

Spanning more than 7,600 square feet – twice the size of a typical location - the State Highway 59 retailer offers 10 gas fueling stations across five islands, 31 parking spots, and the convenience of curbside pickup/order ahead capabilities available with the SmartPay Rewards app. An AutoSpa Car Wash is set to open on-site later in the summer.

“We are very excited about all of food options available at this location,” said George Fournier, President of EG America. “We want to offer families expanded eating choices, so that they don’t have to leave the building. That’s what our newest Tom Thumb is all about.”

To celebrate the opening, beginning June 1 and for a limited time, guests who visit the Gulf Shores location will receive free coffee, fountain and frozen drinks (limit one per customer per day).

In accordance with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, team members and guests who are fully vaccinated will no longer be required to wear masks.
