Sprint Mart Growing in Tupelo

Tupelo, MS – Sprint Mart #37 is receiving a major facelift.  Located at the intersection of McCullough Blvd. and Coley Rd., the store has been an extremely popular stop for Tupelo residents for many years.  However, it had simply outgrown its four walls.  Due to increasing demand for fresh food, convenient fuel options, cold beer, and great customer service, Sprint Mart has built a new, state-of-the-art store directly behind the old store.

The new store began operating earlier this month, prior to demolition of the old store.  It features a full-line Chix deli program, Hot Stuff Pizza, Best Bean Coffee, a large walk-in Beer Cave, large restrooms, a separate diesel fueling island, and Shell-branded fuel products.  The store is operated by Victory Marketing, LLC (dba Sprint Mart).

Founded in 1972 in Columbus, MS, Dutch Oil Company has been selling fuel and convenience to local communities for over 40 years.  Customers, Dealers, and employees trust Dutch Oil Company to bring exceptional service and innovation to the fuel and convenience business.

Sprint Mart in Natchez named “Business of the Month”

Sprint Mart #64 in Natchez, MS was selected as the April Business of the Month by the City of Natchez, Adams County Board of Supervisors, Natchez Business & Civic League, and Natchez-Adams County Chamber of Commerce.

Natchez, MS – Sprint Mart #64 was recently named “Business of the Month” by the City of Natchez.  The new store was opened in November 2016 and is located in the Historic District of Natchez, at the fork of East Franklin St. and John A Quitman Blvd.  It features Sprint Mart fuel with 12 fueling positions, a full-line fresh Chix deli, Best Bean coffee, and a large walk-in beer cave. 

Designed in the antebellum style of popular Natchez landmarks, like the Rosalie and Linden mansions, the store has received rave reviews from locals and visitors alike.

Dutch Oil Directs Shell Funds to Local Non-Profits

Columbus, MS – Shell, Motiva Enterprises, and Dutch Oil company teamed up to deliver $40,000 in funding to two Columbus-area non-profit organizations whose mission is devoted to helping men and women recover from drug/alcohol dependence.  Shell donated $20,000 to both The Last House on the Block (a sober-living home for men) and Recover House (a residential rehabilitation and transitional living facility for women). 

Representatives from Recovery House and The Last House on the Block accept $20,000 checks from Shell/Motiva. Representatives from Dutch Oil and Shell/Motiva were also on hand for the presentation.

Through its Mystery Motorist Program, Shell enforces a policy that bans the sale of drug paraphernalia from stores utilizing its brand.  When a Shell outlet fails to adhere to this policy, its operator is fined and those funds are redirected to charities around the country that are nominated by Shell wholesalers.  In 2016, over $400,000 was redistributed in amounts ranging from $5,000 to $25,000.  Dutch Oil nominated Last House on the Block and Recovery House because of the excellent work each organization does to help men and women turn away from destructive life choices.

Local CBS affiliate, WCBI did a feature story on the donations.  That feature story is available here.

Dutch Oil Making Infrastructure & Security Investments

Columbus, MS – Dutch Oil Company has begun an aggressive infrastructure project focused on upgrading its payment terminals to accommodate the increased security of EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) technology – more commonly known as “chip cards.”  By teaming up with industry-leading partners, like Shell, Gilbarco Veeder-Root, Wayne Fueling Systems, Heartland Payment Systems, and VeriFone, Dutch Oil is installing new payment terminals inside its stores and at many of its fuel dispensers that will allow customers to pay with confidence.

Sprint Mart #4125 in Starkville, MS features EMV-capable terminals at all four payment terminals inside the store and EMV hardware at all 8 fuel dispensers.

Dutch Oil Company is proud to be ahead of the curve with this data security initiative.  While the credit card brands, point-of-sale manufacturers, and software developers are still a long way from completing all software required to process every type of chip card at all terminals, Dutch Oil is moving forward and installing the necessary hardware so that its customers’ purchases are processed with maximum security as soon as software becomes available.

Founded in 1972 in Columbus, MS, Dutch Oil Company has been selling fuel and convenience to local communities for over 40 years.  Customers, Dealers, and employees trust Dutch Oil Company to bring exceptional service and innovation to the fuel and convenience business.
