Mid-Sized Momentum

Stinker Stations' latest acquisition earns it the title of this year's Biggest Mover

T

he big deals grab the big headlines, but there
is more to the merger and acquisition activity in the convenience channel. With smaller
deals, little by little, some convenience store
chains find themselves moving up the Top 100 ladder.
Notching the largest move in this year's ranking is
Stinker Stations Inc. In 2016, the Boise, Idaho-based
retailer squeaked onto the Top 100 list, tying for
the No. 98 spot. Fast forward to 2017 and Stinker
Stations flew up 33 spots to take the No. 65 position
with a total 106 stores in its 100-percent companyoperated portfolio.
Stinker Stations grew by purchasing 41 c-stores from
Bradley Petroleum Inc. and Sav-O-Mat Inc. All of the
stores are in Colorado, except for one in Wyoming.
Like Stinker Stations, Mirabito Holdings Inc. is
another example of mid-sized momentum on this
year's Top 100 list. In 2016, Binghamton, N.Y.-based
Mirabito was tied for the No. 77 spot. Then, last summer, Mirabito acquired 30 gas stations and convenience
stores in New York and Pennsylvania from Global
Partners LP. As a result of the $40-million transaction,
Mirabito boosted its total store count - all companyoperated - to 107 locations and jumped 14 spots on
this year's ranking to stand in the No. 63 spot.
Western Refining Inc. also made a notable climb,
moving up 17 spots year over year from No. 39 to
No. 22 this year. The El Paso, Texas-based company
grew in store count mainly from its June 2016 acquisition of Northern Tier Energy LP that included 170
convenience stores operated by Northern Tier in the

Midwest primarily under the SuperAmerica banner.
Western Refining won't be holding onto its spot for
long, however. It will disappear from the Top 100 in
2018 once the company's acquisition by Tesoro Corp.
is completed.
