Virginia-based MACS Selects Nexxus to Oversee Scan Based Trading Initiative

DANVERS, Massachusetts (September 19, 2012) — Mid-Atlantic Convenience Stores (MACS) has become the latest regional convenience store chain to partner with The Nexxus Group, an industry-leading provider of Scan Based Trading solutions.

MACS is now involved in a major re-branding initiative that will bring its 71 company-owned stores under the umbrella of industry giant Circle K, thereby becoming the exclusive Circle K developer in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Nexxus Group will employ its proprietary scan based trading program to manage the newspaper category at the 71 MACS Mid-Atlantic stores, which have previously operated under three brands: Uppy’s, Tiger Mart and On The Run. The program with The Nexxus Group will commence on Monday, November 19, 2012.

MACS was formed in mid-2010 by Connecticut-based Catterton Partners, the premier consumer-focused private equity firm in North America. MACS acquired a majority interest in Uppy’s Convenience Stores, Inc. in 2010 along with 170 stores/fuel locations from ExxonMobil. MACS now has approximately 300 company-owned and dealer-operated retail locations as well as a wholesale fuel distribution network.

“We are excited about the efficiencies that our program will bring to MACS as it begins this phase of operations,” says Jim Rao, Chairman and Founder of The Nexxus Group. “We look forward to working with such a growth-minded company.” Mid-Atlantic Convenience Stores Announcement
