Published on December 11, 2018
Conger LP Gas celebrated the grand opening of its new location at 146 S. Ridge Avenue in Tifton, Georgia on December 6 and 7, 2018. Hundreds of people attended the two-day event which featured a ribbon cutting and chamber event with the Tifton-Tift County Chamber of Commerce, cooking demonstrations, a cylinder fill special, door prizes and much more.
The new location features a 1,200 square foot showroom with complete fireplaces and gas log sets, Holland grills, and an interactive Rinnai Tankless Water Heater display, which can use Amazon Alexa to start hot water. Conger LP Gas has also been able to expand their product lines and now offers grilling and cooking products as well as gas appliances, such as cooktops, free-standing ranges, and washer/dryer sets. One of the most exciting aspects of the new Tifton location is a classroom-style demonstration kitchen with Wolf and SubZero appliances and is working to schedule cooking demonstrations with some of the top chefs in the Southeast.
The first day of the grand opening began on December 6 with a line of people waiting to take advantage of the special cylinder fill specials. Conger LP Gas ran specials to fill every size cylinder and constantly filled bottles during operating hours from 8 a.m. on December 6 until 6 p.m. on December 7. The public also had the opportunity to register to win various door prizes, including a Powermate 3500 Series Generator and various gift baskets. Local media outlets WALB-TV, The Tifton Gazette, and B100 WOBB were on-site to capture the ribbon cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. with members of the Tifton-Tift County Chamber of Commerce. Conger LP Gas President/CEO Dan Richardson spoke and First Baptist Church of Tifton Pastor Dr. Wayne Roe prayed over the building and staff. Attendees then enjoyed a free lunch and tours of the showroom floor featuring by staff and vendor representatives. The evening ended with a Wolf and SubZero cooking demonstration and a Sunset Tifton chamber event. The grand opening continued on December 7. Rinnai held a continuing education course on Rinnai Tankless Water Heaters with area plumbers. Customers enjoyed a free lunch and cooking demonstrations from Hugh Hardy of Carroll’s Sausage and Country Store and Lauri Jo Bennett of Lauri Jo’s Southern Style Canning, both of which have products available in the Conger LP Gas showroom.
