As reported in a 21st Century Smoke/CSP Daily News Flash, the 41 total Corner Stores in Colorado and Texas that Empire Petroleum has acquired are part of a larger sale conducted by NRC Realty & Capital Advisors LLC, Chicago, that consisted of operating and former CST Brands convenience stores with gasoline located throughout Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.

The acquisition further solidifies our relationship with Valero; a relationship we hope to continue to build in the Rocky Mountain region and elsewhere."
