Sun Mart Stores are officially converting to Circle K branded stores this week, NewsTalk 870am KFLD reported.
The sale of the 27 Sun Marts in S.E. Washington to Couche-Tard was announced earlier this summer, but signage is now changing over to represent the Circle K image. About 18 of the sites are located in the Tri Cities area.
The gas brand will be changing too, with stores converting from Shell gasoline to Exxon. Officials noted about 95% of the Sun Mart employees will be staying on with the new company.
Sun Mart had served the Mid-Columbia, Wash. area for more than 25 years.
