Esso’s On the Run convenience format has joined the Association of Convenience Stores (ACS). This follows On the Run being named the Best Convenience Forecourt Retailer in the group category at the 2007 Checkout Convenience Awards.

Esso, which will have more than 90 On the Run stores in the UK by the end of this year, will join more than 33,000 other convenience stores represented by the ACS.

“I am delighted that Esso has joined ACS with their On the Run format,” said Esso chief executive James Lowman. “Convenience retailing within the forecourt sector is expanding hugely, with the convenience and food service offers being the most commercially productive and innovative areas. This is another step forward for ACS and Esso’s membership will strengthen our work representing the convenience sector.”
