Petrogas Global Ltd. (Applegreen Brand) has acquired small network from Carolina Convenience Corp., as well as its wholesale fuels distribution business in South Carolina.
Carolina Convenience operated eight S-Mart c-stores in Columbia, S.C., and supplied dealers primarily in the Columbia market with a few dealers in the east of South Carolina. Petrogas Global has retained the company’s c-store employees at the acquired stores. The company sites have various fuel brands including BP, ExxonMobil and Sunoco. The fuel retailer also supplied unbranded motor fuels to a few of its dealers.
