Enmarket, a Savannah-based convenience store chain, has bought the former Tiger Express #14 store at 2265 Boundary St. in Beaufort to bring its total outlets to 50 stores in South Carolina.

“The location is a strategic part of our growth plan in the Beaufort area,” said Brett Giesick, president of Enmarket. “Highway 21 is a heavily commuted artery connecting Charleston and Beaufort, making this location a prime opportunity for us.”

The 4,475-square-foot store will reopen Thursday after new fuel dispensers are installed and the interior is outfitted with improvements such as Enmarket’s popular bean-to-cup coffee brewers.

The location will undergo a more comprehensive renovation before the end of the year. The prime feature of the remodel will be the installation of Enmarket’s signature Eatery restaurant. The existing car wash will be updated as well. The store is expected to stay open throughout the remodel.

The Beaufort store will offer such technology-based amenities as Skip Frictionless Checkout, which lets customers skip lines at the cash register and pay via their cell phones, as well as Enmarket’s loyalty program Enjoy Rewards and enPay. Customers will find the stores well stocked, including fresh food and healthy snacks. The store offers unleaded, mid grade, premium and diesel fuels.
