Maverik’s new location at the corner of Ruth and Whipple Streets in Prescott.

Maverik open in Prescott

Maverik, the convenience store and gas station chain, has opened a new location at the corner of Ruth and Whipple streets near Prescott High School.

This is the first Maverik in Prescott and the third in the quad-city area.

Merger rumor

There has been some media chatter that Albertsons and Sprouts Farmers Market are in preliminary merger talks.

The ruckus is traced back to a Bloomberg article on Sunday, March 19, stating, without naming sources, that representatives from the supermarkets have begun merger discussions.

Albertsons spokesperson Christine Wilcox told the Courier: “We don’t offer comment on rumors or speculation.”
