ST. PAUL, Minn. -- CHS Inc. continues to grow its Cenex brand, offering a suite of services to retailers looking to transition to the banner, including Community Oil Co., which recently opened its first Cenex convenience store in Rock Valley, Iowa.
"The Cenex brand continues to grow, and we are very pleased that Community Oil Co. has opened a Cenex convenience store in its community," said Steve Haase, CHS' retail solutions manager. "Our CHS retail experts have been collaborating closely with the company's team to help ensure a strong start and long-term success for the new c-store."
Community Oil Co. has taken advantage of the CHS Retail Solutions Preferred Vendor Program, the CHS Retail Specialist Consulting Program and the CHS 5-STAR Evaluation Study -- an operational assessment and comprehensive analysis that determines the financial strength of an existing or potential retail operation.
"I'm very satisfied with the Preferred Vendor Program and the support CHS has provided to help us open a new convenience store and provide great customer service," said Mike Bruckner, general manager for Community Oil Co., based in Rock Valley.
The vendor program offers a variety of goods and services that benefit the entire Cenex c-store network; trusted vendors that provide high-quality goods and services in their categories and regions; help for retailers to meet their business goals; and value to the vendors who participate.
"Our Preferred Vendor Program provides the convenience of trusted vendor connections that are right for today's c-stores. We understand what retailers need to compete, and we offer a number of resources to help ensure a smooth transition to the Cenex brand," Haase said.
