Des Moines, Iowa-based Kum & Go outbid oil giant Sinclair Petroleum Corp. in a bankruptcy auction on June 15 to buy nearly all of the assets of Git-n-Go Inc. In the $9 million dollar purchase agreement, Kum & Go acquired 40 convenience stores located in Oklahoma and 36 in Missouri. With the addition of these 76 stores and their inventories, Kum & Go, the nation's 22nd-largest convenience store chain, increases its total unit count to about 450. CEO W.A. Bill Krause stated that the purchase will expand Kum & Go's annual revenues to more than $1 billion and increase its presence in the two states, where it previously had just 15 stores.
