Circle K Wins Operations Superstar Award for Implementing AccuStore®
Clearwater, FL, October 27, 2015 – AccuStore is proud to congratulate its client, Circle K, on winning a Store Operations Superstar Award from Retail TouchPoints. Circle K was recognized as one of 11 companies that have implemented the most innovative, successful store operations strategies. AccuStore nominated Circle K after noticing the store transformations it achieved across multiple divisions using the AccuStore mobile app and platform.
“Superstar” Circle K was named in a group of other retail heavyweights that included Macy’s, Orvis, Yankee Candle, Michael Kors and more. “We are proud to honor these 11 varied companies that have risen above the competition to implement innovative and successful store operations strategies,” said Debbie Hauss, Editor-in-Chief of Retail TouchPoints. Circle K was awarded the “silver” in the mobile strategies category for implementing a retail technology solution that enabled the company to gain faster access to store-level information on the go.

For more than 50 years, Circle K has been one of the most popular and successful convenience store chains in the country with more than 3,300 stores nationwide. Circle K utilizes a regional operations strategy. Marketing knew a one-size-fits-all approach to promotions would mean overspending because of the variances in store sizes and not adequately meet the customers’ needs at the store level. So they turned to AccuStore, a site intelligence app, to help them manage and track regional changes, as well as pinpoint store needs.
With access to better site intelligence, Circle K improved the in-store experience for its customers by…
- Drastically reducing over-spend
- Eliminating waste
- Opening up two-way communication between the head office and the stores
“We’re honored to be the catalyst behind Circle K’s store operations success. AccuStore provided the speed and ease for Circle K to create the store experience it envisioned,” said Alec Veinger, AccuStore Vice President.
