CSA Offers Trip Giveaway Around Conversions to Core-Mark Program
NORMAN, Okla. — As winter settles in, convenience store operators may be dreaming of warmer weather and sandy beaches. Convenience Store Alliance (CSA) is offering a chance for that dream to become a reality.
In its latest promotion, CSA is offering an all-inclusive vacation for two to the Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with airfare. Now through March 31, c-stores that convert all grocery and tobacco purchases to CSA's national Core-Mark program will get two entries into the trip-giveaway drawing. Stores that convert from April 1 through June 30 will receive one entry.
"We know it's a big decision to switch grocery suppliers," said CSA President and CEO Mike Lawson. "So we're offering the getaway as extra incentive to an already lucrative chain-store deal. The odds are definitely worth betting on, but even the owners who don't win the trip will still be taking their savings to the bank from the national chain-store deal."
In order to qualify, stores must still be in Core-Mark's database, actively purchasing through CSA's national account at the time of the drawing.
"The odds of winning the trip will be about one in 200," Lawson said. "But the odds of saving something with CSA is still 100 percent. Our Core-Mark customers save enough money to take their entire families on vacations for years to come."
CSA helps independent convenience store operators nationwide compete with large-chain stores. For the western half of the United States, CSA is the Phillips 66 Branded Retailer Buying Program and is available to more than 7,000 branded sites that currently sell Phillips 66, Conoco or 76 branded gasoline.
