LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (October 24, 2022) GPO Plus, Inc. (OTCQB: GPOX), a publicly traded company of diversified Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs) using the power of Group Purchasing to save businesses money, announced the signing of a Binding Letter of Intent (LOI) Asset Purchase Agreement to acquire assets of Betterment Retail Solutions, Inc.

Betterment developed a strong DSD (Direct Store Distribution) infrastructure catering to over 470 retail locations throughout Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Iowa, Kansas, Wyoming, Missouri and Nebraska. Strong relationships with retailers include Yesway/Allsups, Texas Born, and CEFCO.

The Betterment and Feel Good Shops assets are to be managed under DISTRO+, GPOX’s distribution division, and GPO for specialty retailers and wholesalers.
Dorsey Sparks, President of Betterment said “I couldn’t be happier about the opportunity with GPOX and DISTRO+. This partnership will support multiple growth opportunities and allow us to serve an exponentially larger customer base with our curated, best in class products. I’m excited to work with such a talented and energetic team!”
Joseph Jaconi, President of DISTRO+, said “We are elated to have reached an agreement with Betterment that will increase our (DISTRO+) distribution footprint immediately adding over 470 retail locations.
