Booster’s on-demand service can fill up customers’ gas tanks while they shop. Shoppers are encouraged to download the Booster app before heading to the mall.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Santa Monica, CA (PRURGENT) -- Great Mall and Booster Fuels are thrilled to announce a partnership to provide shoppers with an on-demand mobile fueling amenity at the mall. You may be thinking that getting gas isn’t that big of a deal, but did you know that people waste three billion hours each year on gas station errands? A minute at the pump can mean an extra 10 in traffic.
Starting December 11, 2017, Great Mall and Booster are saving you time and giving this tired task a makeover by offering the consumer the ability to get their shopping done and get their gas tank filled at the same time with a simple click of a button on your phone. The gas provided will be offered at rates competitive with what you find at the local gas station.
Shoppers are encouraged to download the Booster app before heading to the mall. Once parked, drop a pin from within the app to designate the location of your car, leave the gas tank door popped open, and then the Booster Fuels mini tanker will safely navigate the Great Mall parking lot, delivering gas to shoppers’ cars.
“We are thrilled to partner with Booster and offer the convenience of this unique amenity to our shoppers,” says Lynne Rice, Director of Mall Marketing at Great Mall. “Great Mall is always looking for innovative ways to enhance and deliver a superior shopping experience from the parking lot to our doors.”
While this is the first retail establishment for Booster, the company is already working with six of the eight largest employers in Milpitas. Booster also works with more than 500 companies in the Bay Area and the Dallas Fort Worth metropolitan areas, including ten of the Fortune 100 companies.
“Booster is reinventing the gas station experience for a technology enabled world, says Booster CEO and Founder, Frank Mycroft. “Partnering with Great Mall offers a unique opportunity to provide customers with a convenient time saving alternative to the gas station errand while shopping at a world class retail destination. “
Booster Fuels services are available to all Great Mall customers and employees at no charge. No need to worry about the headache of gas stations because the gas comes to you while you shop. There is no planning required; just allow a short window of time while you are shopping to allow Booster to come fill the tank. Due to increased traffic, service will be unavailable December 18 – 25. Service will resume on December 26. To learn more about Booster, visit www.greatmallbayarea.com or www.trybooster.com/greatmall.
