ST. LOUIS – Schnucks Markets Inc. is expanding its Schnucks Express fuel center portfolio through the acquisition of two existing Mid-South convenience stores formerly operated as Fill 'n Stations, reported Progressive Grocer, sister publication to Convenience Store News.
Schnucks Mid-South division manager John O'Donnell said the move represents a strategic expansion for the company. "The Schnucks Express fuel centers will enable us to enhance our convenience offerings and provide additional value to our customers on both the fuel and grocery sides," O'Donnell said. "These stations will help to round out our overall one-stop shopping experience for customers."
The deal was finalized last week, with the c-stores converted and fully equipped to accept Schnucks coupons and special offers, the report stated.
Schnucks entered the Mid-South market in 2002, when the company acquired 12 Seessel's stores and five convenience stores from Albertsons. In 2004, Schnucks built two new stores and a replacement store in Germantown. Schnuck Markets operates 101 grocery stores and 98 pharmacies in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Tennessee and Mississippi.
