Multi-year partnership makes ACME the official grocery store of the Monster Mile
DOVER, Del. – As part of an all-new, multi-year partnership between ACME Markets and Dover International Speedway, the popular grocery store chain will bring a convenience tent store to the track as an amenity for fans beginning with the May 29-June 2, 2013 NASCAR race weekend.
The 2,500-square-foot tent store will provide fans coming to the Speedway for race weekend the convenience of not needing to pack or stock up on items prior to their trip, as just about anything they need or even forget to bring can be found in the convenience store. It will feature many items race fans could find in their local grocery store, including: meat, deli items, bakery items, fresh fruit and vegetables, chips, cookies, crackers, prepared foods, beverages, and more.
“ACME Markets is looking forward to offering fans the convenience of the great quality food that you find in our stores,” said Jim Perkins, ACME Markets president. “With the Acme Dover store next door to the Speedway, we can continue our commitment to be the full service supermarket and pharmacy for the Dover community and Speedway fans.”
“With such a deep-rooted history in the area, ACME Markets is an ideal partner, and we’re excited to welcome them as the official grocery store of Dover International Speedway,” said Mike Tatoian, executive vice president and COO of the track. “This new tent store will be a major convenience that ACME will provide our fans on race weekend, enhancing their overall experience while at the track.”
The ACME Convenience Tent will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29 through Sunday, June 2, and is located just off the intersection of Leipsic Road and Persimmon Tree Lane, at the edge of RV Lot 10.
NASCAR returns to Dover International Speedway May 31-June 2, 2013, for the June 2 “FedEx 400 benefiting Autism Speaks” NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, the June 1 “5-hour ENERGY 200” NASCAR Nationwide Series race and the May 31 “Lucas Oil 200” NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race.
