Publix to Sell 14 PIX Locations
LAKELAND, Fla. -- October 22, 2013
Publix Super Markets Inc. announced its decision to sell PIX, the fuel/C-store
concept it began testing in 2001. Circle K Stores Inc., a wholly owned
subsidiary of Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc., will purchase 13 sites of which
11 are located in Florida and two in Georgia, and Max Arnold & Sons, LLC, a
family-owned company located in Hopkinsville, KY that has been in operation
for more than 60 years, will purchase the site located in Tennessee.
“We consistently evaluate our business, including the products and services we
choose to offer our customers,” said Publix CEO Ed Crenshaw. “The sale of PIX
locations gives us the ability to remain passionately focused on our core
business, our customers and the products and services we offer within our
grocery retail environment.”
The company will help the approximately 120 PIX associates find employment
within Publix comparable to their current positions.
