Family-owned Reid Petroleum is a full service, independent marketer supplying transportation fuels and related services to retail convenience stores and commercial businesses throughout New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio. Reid Petroleum also operates a growing chain of more than 80 retail convenience stores under the Crosby’s brand.
Crosby Dairy opened its first store in 1966 in Little Valley, N.Y. It took a converted milk plant, used shelving acquired from a local auto parts store, used ice cream freezers, and a register with a hand-crank. It hauled groceries in a milk truck from Bishop Wholesale in Buffalo, and soon after, opened its second location in Hinsdale, transforming a renovated old ice cream stand into modernized building that ultimately became one of its flagship locations. Since then, the family business has grown from a modest dairy farm into a convenience store chain serving Northwestern Pennsylvania and the Western New York regions.
