Editors Blog about Day in the Life of Valero

San Antonio, Texas -- Check out today’s Spare Change blog for "you were there" reports from Convenience Store News’ editorial team about their "Day in the Life" visit to Valero Retail Holdings.

Editors Tammy Mastroberte, Linda Lisanti and Mehgan Belanger came away with a deep appreciation for this trail-blazing convenience store retailer—and got a glimpse into why the company is so successful. Valero ranked No. 11 on CSNews’ Top 100 Convenience Store chart with more than 1,500 stores—960 of them company-operated at a time when many oil companies are abandoning the corporate ownership of their retail operations. Valero was also named on Fortune’s 2009 list of 100 Best Companies to Work For, and was the 2009 No. 1 Best Big Company to Work For in the magazine as well.

The purpose of CSNews’ industry-exclusive Day in the Life series is to provide its readers a glimpse into the everyday challenges and tribulations of c-store industry people. Last year, the staff provided a look inside Enon, Ohio-based Speedway SuperAmerica.

Stay tuned for this year’s Day in the Life of Valero report in our July issue.
