Global Partners LP operates 277 convenience stores in the Northeast. The company opened a new Alltown Fresh c-store in Schenectady, N.Y., in August 2020. It features fresh food and made-to-order meals including organic, natural, gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian options made with locally sourced ingredients. The 4,800-square-foot market is designed to create a farmstand-like experience with a menu of healthy options such as all-day breakfast, salads, smoothies, sandwiches, bowls and more.

In December 2020, the company signed an agreement to purchase Consumers Petroleum of Connecticut, with 27 company-operated gas stations with Wheels-branded convenience stores in Connecticut.
