Go Mart, Times launch promotion

Local readers can fuel their brain and their vehicle as The Marietta Times and The Parkersburg News and Sentinel join area Go Marts to offer a free newspaper when customers buy at least eight gallons of gasoline.

The promotion begins today at any of the 15 area Go Mart locations. The offer applies to all editions of The Marietta Times and The Parkersburg News and Sentinel/Marietta A.M. The promotion gives customers a chance to stay informed while offering Go Mart a chance to spotlight its pay-at-the-pump customers everything it has to offer inside the stores.

A similar promotion last year resulted in more than 100,000 customers who purchased fuel while also getting a free newspaper. The promotion will last four months.

“It’s a win-win for everyone,” said Terry Smith, director of marketing for the gasoline and convenience store chain.

The promotion is among the most successful, she said.

“We’re really glad to offer this to our customers again,” Smith said.
