Publix to Sell 14 PIX Locations

Source: Fuel Marketer News

Publix Super Markets Inc. announced its decision to sell PIX, the fuel-convenience store concept it began testing in 2001. Circle K Stores Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc., will purchase 13 sites of which 11 are in Florida and two in Georgia. Max Arnold & Sons, LLC, a family-owned company in Hopkinsville, Ky., will purchase the remaining site, in Tennessee.

“We consistently evaluate our business, including the products and services we choose to offer our customers,” said Publix CEO Ed Crenshaw. “The sale of PIX locations gives us the ability to remain passionately focused on our core business, our customers and the products and services we offer within our grocery retail environment.”

The company will help the approximately 120 PIX associates find employment within Publix comparable to their current positions.

The 14 PIX sites are located adjacent to Publix-anchored shopping centers:
