Alliance Energy acquisition Xtra Mart teams up with Nexxus

BEVERLY, Massachusetts (May 1, 2015) — The Nexxus Group’s client Alliance Energy LLC, a division of Global Partners LP, recently acquired Xtra Mart Convenience Stores/Drake Petroleum and has selected Nexxus to implement a Scan Based Trading program for newspaper category management. The program launches May 11.

Established in 1977, Xtra Mark operates approximately 147 company convenience stores, including 88 in New England and another 59 in New York and Pennsylvania.

The company maintains strong community ties and has been a primary benefactor of the Jennifer Creed Fund for more than 20 years, raising money through in-store promotions and donations as well as the annual Jennifer Creed Golf Classic.  The Fund was established in 1974 to help assist Jennifer Creed’s family with the cost of their daughter’s leukemia treatment. The mission of aiding families facing a medical crisis remains in place and this past Christmas, 150 families received $250 holiday assistance checks from the Fund.

“Xtra Mart has a history of superb service and commitment to its communities. We are very excited about the efficiencies that our program will bring to their operations,”” says Mark Landgren, CEO of Nexxus Group. “We are looking forward to the opportunity to work with them.”  

The Nexxus Group has provided service for Alliance Energy since June 2012. Alliance Energy was established more than 70 years ago and owns and operates a growing network of gasoline stations and convenience stores throughout the Northeast.
