Distributor Doyles Sheehan Joins Phillips 66 Buying Program
NORMAN, Okla. — Convenience Store Alliance (CSA) has picked up a new partner with full-service distributor Doyles Sheehan to bring independent c-store owners discounts and promotions on items including grocery, tobacco, food service and more.
Under terms of the partnership, Doyles Sheehan will offer CSA members free business analyses with customized store layouts based on customer traffic patterns and demographic purchasing data. Doyles Sheehan will also help customers access and increase rebates available from manufacturers in addition to CSA discount pricing.
“We’re thrilled to offer this new discount program through CSA,” said Doyles Sheehan Director of Sales Jeff Bonacci. “Being family-owned-and-operated ourselves, we have a desire to see independents not just ‘make it,’ but truly excel in this competitive retail environment. And we believe this partnership will help make that happen.”
