These locations have strong fuel and convenience assets with a track record of growth and a network of experienced employees. With this transaction, we look forward to growing in the Pacific Northwest and making our customers’ lives a little easier everyday in that region,” said Brian Hannasch, president and CEO of Alimentation Couche-Tard.
