GPM Investments LLC, the Henrico County-based company that owns and operates the Fas Mart convenience store chain, continues its expansion into the Midwest.

The company announced Monday that it has taken ownership of 161 convenience stores in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Illinois. The stores, acquired from VPS MW, will continue to operate under the Village Pantry and Next Door Store brands.
