Holiday Buys 7 SuperAmerica Stores in Rochester

Holiday Stationstores purchased seven of its rival’s convenience stores in Rochester and plans additional growth.

Bloomington-based Holiday Stationstores recently bought seven of its rival SuperAmerica’s convenience stores in Rochester, according to a report by the Rochester Post-Bulletin.
 
Holiday had reportedly closed two of the former SuperAmerica stores and rebranded five as its own, as of Wednesday.
 
“We are very pleased to build the Holiday brand in the Rochester community,” said Brent Blackey, president and chief operating officer, said, according to the Rochester newspaper. “As part of our plan to expand our brand, we plan to build additional stores in Rochester.”
 
The employees of the converted SuperAmerica stores became Holiday employees after the rebranding, according to the newspaper.
 
The Rochester stores converting to the Holiday brand are at 701 Broadway, 400 Fourth Street, 919 37th Street, 1520 Second Street, and 5505 Highway 52. The two that are closing are at 2025 South Broadway and 601 11th Avenue, according to the newspaper.
 
The recent purchases expand on acquisitions that Holiday made in September 2011, when it bought out 15 fuel centers in Minnesota from Eden Prairie-based Supervalu.
 
As of November 2012, Forbes ranked Holiday as the 101st largest private company in the country with $3.9 billion in revenue and 5,000 employees. Holiday has more than 300 corporately owned stores and more than 100 franchise stores throughout 10 states in the Midwest and west coast regions.
