During the same year, 7,477 locations closed, with at least 877 c-stores being replaced by another entity in its physical location. Economic factors, in addition to poor planning and operating choices, helped contribute to these failures.

- Environmental compliance assistance. Ensure your site’s fuel operations are compliant. We are well-versed in the safe delivery and secure storage of fuel products, as well as well as onsite compliance requirements.
- Fuel inventory management. Leave the fuel to us. We can monitor your tank levels and deliver fuel to you on a “keep full” basis so you can concentrate on your day-to-day operations.
- Retail maintenance program. Keep your site looking fresh, year after year. Updates to paint, pump islands, and parking lots can significantly improve your customers’ experience – and your mystery shop scores, if you are branded.
