PORTLAND (AP) – The Bath-based retailer that operates Clipper Mart convenience stores, car washes and gasoline stations along southern Maine’s Route 1 corridor has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

M.W. Sewall & Co. filed its bankruptcy petition last week, saying it’s reorganizing its operations and does not plan to close any stores.

M.W. Sewall, a family-owned business, has about 150 employees and also sells heating oil and modular homes.

The Portland Press Herald said the company listed Citgo Petroleum as its largest unsecured creditor, with a claim of roughly $1.2 million.
