In 2008, we expanded our partnership with Alimentation Couche-Tard to 252 retail sites.
Irving Oil began our relationship with North American retail industry Alimentation Couche-Tard in 2001 when we jointly developed a convenience store retail partnership in Quebec.
Under our partnership, Irving Oil-owned convenience store properties located in Atlantic Canada and New England are leased to Couche-Tard which operates the stores under its ‘Circle K’ brand. The fuel pumps and sites are Irving Oil branded, and Irving Oil supplies the fuel products to the sites. In Canada, we have sites in New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island. In the US, we have sites in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Vermont.
