Volta Oil, a Massachusetts-based convenience store retailer and parent company of Garrett’s Family Markets, has earned the Safe Shop Assured™ certification at four Rapid Refill and Garrett’s Family Market locations in Falmouth, Centerville, Bellingham and Nashua, N.H.
Each store met and exceeded a 10-point checklist of essential safety measures. Ongoing education will be used to inform program expansion into all 18 store locations.
“With roots dating back to the 1930s, we’ve always been focused on doing right by our communities,” said Peter Garrett, president of Volta Oil. “Many consumer trends come and go in waves, but we’ve also found that some things never change. That’s why we work hard to be a trusted local brand with clean, safe, familiar, and family-friendly stores. We’re proud to earn Safe Shop Assured™ certification and be recognized for our efforts.”
Founded in 1930 by Harold Volta, Volta Oil began with a single Texaco gas station that eventually grew into a multi-product fuel distribution business with a focus on gasoline, diesel, aviation fuel, home heating and more. After Harold Volta’s retirement in 1976, the company was purchased by Jim Garrett in 1991. Garrett’s Family Market stores feature handcrafted and all-natural organic signature fountain and frozen drinks, calzones, Barnyard Subs, deep dish pizza, baked goods and sandwiches.
