A Rushville gasoline supplier recently began the conversion of a Swifty Oil Co. convenience store it purchased in Brownstown into a Marathon station.

Herdrich Petroleum Corp. paid $114,000 for the convenience store and gasoline station at 301 N. Main St., according to a sale disclosure form on file with the auditor’s office in Brownstown. The purchase also involved an estimated $5,478 in personal property.

The sale of the Brownstown store is part of a larger, contested effort to liquidate the assets of Swifty Oil and Swifty Transportation, including three stations in Seymour. The two Seymour companies were owned by Don Myers Sr. before his death on July 25, 2013. Myers founded Swifty Oil in 1963.
