Smith’s Opens Fuel Center in Kimball Junction

Press Release

November 21, 2012

Smith’s Food & Drug Stores has opened its 39th Smith’s Express fuel station in Utah in the parking lot of Smith’s Food & Drug Store located at 1725 West Uinta Way in the Village Kimball Junction just off SR 224.

The station is comprised of eight filling nozzles that include diesel fuel as an option, courtesy air hose, a convenience-item case for snacks, and a 10’ X 20’ kiosk for the fuel attendant. Pumps are available 24 hours for use.

Smith’s uses state-of-the-art technology for the safety and efficiency of its fuel centers. Added measures include double-walled fiberglass reinforced plastic tanks with 24 hour alarm monitoring systems; a vapor recovery system that captures fumes from fuel trucks at delivery; and canopy lights that direct light downward so as not to escape beyond the service area.

The adjacent Smith’s Food & Drug Store is currently under construction and when completed, will provide more selection and convenience for customers. The store will remain open during the remodeling process. Completion is scheduled for Spring 2013.

“We are pleased to now offer our Park City customers fuel savings at our Smith’s Express,” said Abbi Kimball, Smith’s Kimball Junction store director. “In fact, rewards points maybe redeemed to save up to $2 per gallon through the remainder of the year.”

Smith’s is celebrating its 80th anniversary in 2012. It has grown from a single store in Brigham City, Utah to becoming a division of the Kroger Co., the nation’s largest traditional grocery retailer. Smith’s operates a total of 131 food stores and 79 fuel stations throughout seven western states, including 47 stores and 39 fuel stations in Utah.
