August 18, 2023

Nouria Energy Corporation has acquired H.A Mapes, Inc., a Maine-based fuel distributor and convenience store operator. The acquisition includes company-operated convenience stores under the proprietary Harry's brand, commission dealer (COCM) sites, leased wagon (DTW) dealers, as well as a vast network of open dealers and commercial accounts and the H.A Mapes headquarters, located in Springvale, Maine, according to a press release.

"This acquisition marks a significant milestone for Nouria. With this purchase, we continue our mission to grow and deliver more value to our customers and employees. The addition of the Harry's brand of convenience stores, the COCM and DTW dealers, and the open dealer network to our portfolio, further strengthens our position in the Northeast market,” the company said.

Nouria Energy Corporation is one of New England’s largest family-owned convenience and fuel retailers with 175 company-owned locations as well as a dealer network.

Simultaneously, Nouria Energy arranged the sale of H.A Mapes’ transportation business to Brown Bear Company. This sale enables Nouria to streamline operations, maintain strategic focus and leverage core competencies to drive long-term growth.

"We are excited about this opportunity to expand our retail footprint and diversify our dealer network," said Tony El-Nemr, founder and CEO of Nouria Energy. "While we've had a brief ownership of H.A Mapes’ Transportation Division, we believe that under the stewardship of Brown Bear Company, the legacy of the brand will continue to flourish."
