The Handy family has opened the first Irving Oil gas station at 401 Main Street in Winooski, Vt., expanding the regional brand to the community.
“Our family has owned and operated convenience stores in Vermont and New Hampshire since the 1970’s,” said Charlie Handy. “We have been impressed by Irving’s cleanly, well-lit, efficient stores and competitive prices for years and always wanted to be a part of the Irving brand. We can also relate to the Irving family story. Our family moved from Lebanon with barely anything and grew our business to 20 family-owned and operated convenience stores throughout Vermont and New Hampshire. We’re excited to bring Irving to Chittenden County.”
Irving Oil, based just north of Maine in Atlantic Canada is a leading energy refiner and marketer currently growing across the Northeast. The Winooski store is one of several new sites to recently open in the state. The Main Street Irving offers complete convenience store service with a variety of products at competitive prices.
“Irving is always looking to partner with businesses that share our values for excellent customer service and a great fueling experience; we know that’s exactly what the Handy family will provide,” said Harry Hadiaris, general manager of Irving Oil Marketing. “We’re very pleased to continue to expand the Irving name in Vermont.”
The new Irving Oil station on 401 Main Street in Winooski is open for business. A Grand opening celebration to welcome new and returning customers is expected in the coming weeks.
