Dallas -- 7-Eleven announced that it has completed a transaction to acquire 18 Open Pantry convenience store locations in Wisconsin, primarily in the greater Milwaukee and Madison markets. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“7-Eleven has set and met very ambitious growth goals the past three years, here in the U.S. and internationally," said Robbie Radant, 7-Eleven VP mergers & acquisitions. "We are on track this year to surpass even those record-breaking years. Last year, 7-Eleven opened more than 600 stores in the U.S. and Canada and is on target to open at least 630 in 2012."
All 18 stores are located approximately in the lower third of the state with the northernmost store in Oshkosh and the southernmost in Kenosha. Four stores are located in Milwaukee city-proper and others in the surrounding communities of Franklin, Brookfield, Delafield, Oak Creek, New Berlin, Sussex, Oconomowoc and Pewaukee. Another three are in Madison.
