Hood's Market Celebrates 20 Years
In June 2000 Mark Hood took on a new business project when he purchased what is now known as Hood’s Market. Mark, son of the late Bill and Regina Hood, was no stranger to running a local business for the people of Butler County. Over the past 20 years the little market on the corner of Sawmill Road and Hwy 231, has been through some major renovations. Hood’s Market now offers a variety of options for customers from fuel, diesel, off-road diesel, DEF, deli service, grocery items, snacks, auto items, lottery and has become a place for breakfast and lunch goers to gather.
In March 2020, when COVID-19 pandemic closed schools and businesses for several weeks, the Hood family and dedicated employees continued to provide the essential services. They took necessary precautions early in the pandemic to ensure the safety of their customers and the staff. As others are re-opening, Hood’s Market is also looking “more normal” with social distancing and other arrangements made to offer the familiar services in a healthy and safe manner.
Hood’s Market is the only locally owned gas station/ mini mart in Morgantown city limits. The most recent service Hood’s Market is offering, since the last renovation, is the Butler County Bears Spirit Pump. Fuel pumps #1 and# 2 are now dedicated to support the BC School System as Hood will be giving one cent per gallon purchased on those pumps to the school system. The money donated to BCS will be used for safety and security purposes. While that may not sound like a lot, those pennies add up! Since this project began in January and with only word of mouth and social media as advertisement, the Hood family will be making their first donation in the upcoming weeks! The BC Spirit pumps #1 and #2 offer 100% pure gas (non-ethanol) as well as three grades of ethanol.
Be sure to support local businesses and be sure to get your fuel from the pumps that have the BC Bear logo and you too will be supporting your school system. It is the local businesses and business owners who understand community support and service!
Thank you Hood family for 20 years in Butler County!
