The Holiday Gas stations were actually purchased by Alimentation Couche-Tard, a very large world retailer back in 2017.  Circle K was already in their stable of stores, so the plan all along was to rebrand all of the Holiday Gas Stations to Circle K.

It's just taken some time to do this.  Circle K is a global brand and is represented in over 20 countries, according to the Holiday Gas Station website.

There are currently over 500 Holiday Gas Stations across the United States.

All of them are in the process of this same name change and makeover.  I spoke with a couple of the employees of this Circle K at 905 East Bismarck Expressway and they told me the other two Bismarck Holiday Gas Stations will be going through the same process over the next couple of months.

For those of you who have become accustomed to Holiday Gas Stations, you will notice very few changes inside the store.  Since Holiday Gas Stations have technically been owned by Circle K since 2017.

We have a total of three Holiday Gas Stations in Bismarck.

They are located at the aforementioned 905 East Bismarck Expressway, 3815 Trenton Drive off of North Expressway, and 3600 State Street in north Bismarck.  There are no Holiday Gas Stations in Mandan.
