SAINT-THOMAS — With the approval of the Canadian Competition Bureau, Harnois Energies acquired a portion of a retail convenience stores and fuel network in the Maritime provinces under the Esso, Wilsons Gas Stops, Go! Stores and Coast Gas (Wilsons System) brands.

In August 2022, Alimentation Couche-Tard obtained the consent of the Competition Bureau of Canada to acquire the Wilsons System, subject to the sale of a portion of this network.

This acquisition includes 52 sites (34 corporate stations and 18 affiliated stations) across four provinces: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador. In total, approximately 350 new employees will join the Harnois Energies team.

“We are very pleased with this acquisition in the Maritimes. The addition of this strong network allows Harnois Energies to consolidate its leadership position in the market and to expand its presence in Atlantic Canada. We are looking forward to welcoming those new employees to our great family,” said Serge Harnois, President and CEO of Harnois Energies.
