This article presents a brief information on retail trade in the U.S., as of April 12, 2004. After months of financial turmoil, bankrupt Tulsa, Oklahoma-based convenience store chain Git-n-Go Inc. is relieving Ron Ford of his responsibilities because he helped another company in its effort to buy the store chain. Git-n-Go's parent company, distributor Hale-Halsell, plans to shut down its grocery business and file for bankruptcy soon. Scottsdale, Arizona-based petroleum-refining and marketing company Giant Industries Inc. may be forced to shut down Virginia's only oil refinery if the U.S. House of Delegates' tax-reform plan ends sales-tax exemptions. Nashville, Tennessee-based Cone Cos. has sold its 14 local fuel and convenience centers to Consumers Gasoline Stations Inc. operators of Scot Markets.
