Landmark Services Cooperative, doing business as Alcivia, recently sold 16 convenience stores to Consumers Cooperative, Sauk City, Wisconsin.
The stores operate under the Alcivia Country Store brand and offer Cenex fuel, and include six unattended Pump 24 locations that do not offer food or beverages.
“We are excited to have this opportunity to work with Consumers Cooperative, and we could not have found a better partner with the expertise and a core business focus on c-stores,” said Jim Dell, Alcivia’s CEO and president, said in mid-December. “It is critical to Alcivia and our members that we strongly focus on the support, strategic vision, growth and ongoing improvements of our core businesses. By improving our operational efficiencies, introducing innovation, investing in facilities and assets, and introducing new products and services in animal nutrition, agronomy, energy, grain, input financing and technology, we can ensure Alcivia’s continued success.”
Alcivia is a member-owned agricultural and energy cooperative based in Cottage Grove, Wisconsin. It serves farm, business and retail customers in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois and Iowa, including offering competitive operating loans and input financing, as well as products and services for the agronomy, animal nutrition, energy and grain needs of its customers.
“We are extremely excited to have the opportunity to partner with Alcivia on the acquisition of their 16 c-stores located throughout the state of Wisconsin,” said Eric Cantwell, Consumers Cooperative CEO and general manager. “This is a fantastic growth opportunity for our cooperative in an area where we have found great success. With our retail expertise and desire to improve facilities, products, and services, coupled with our focus on our customers and the communities we serve, ensures a smooth transition and bright future for these stores.”
Consumers Cooperative was incorporated in 1927 as a Wisconsin member cooperative, created by the early farmers of Sauk Prairie to provide the community with petroleum products at a fair price, it said.
