7-Eleven set to sell three Wilson Farms locations in Genesee County
In 2011, 7-Eleven, Inc., acquired the Buffalo-based Wilson Farms chain and according to an industry report, the company that pioneered the convenience store concept decided to sell three of newly purchased locations in Genesee County.
According to CSPnet.com, 7-Eleven will sell two locations in Batavia and one Le Roy.
The Batavia locations would appear to be the stores at corner of Ellicott and Cedar streets and at 189 Pearl St.
A month or so ago, 7-Eleven converted the Wilson Farm at 505 E. Main St., Batavia, to its own branded store.
It appears 7-Eleven is unloading the locations that sell gas.
"In any acquisition of an entire chain, there will inevitably be some stores that don't fit with a buyer's long-term strategic plans," said Robbie Radant, 7-Eleven vice president of mergers and acquisitions. "Such is the case with these 30 properties. While not right for our current operations, we believe they will provide great opportunities for the right buyers, as they did for Wilson Farms over the years."
I only go to the one on Pearl St. And the employees are super friendly. It can be crazy getting in or To get out of. I hope someone buys that location.
