CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Circle K, the global convenience store chain, is offering 40 cents off per gallon of fuel between 4 and 7 p.m. local time during Circle K Fuel Day on Sept. 1.

This year’s Fuel Day sale will be “one of the largest fuel sales in the United States, maybe ever,” Circle K CEO Brian Hannasch said on the Laval, Quebec-based company's first-quarter fiscal 2023 earnings call on Aug. 31.

  • Alimentation Couche-Tard is No. 2 on CSP’s 2022 Top 202 ranking of convenience store chain store counts by company-owned locations.

At more than 3,600 Circle K branded fuel locations across the United States in advance of the Labor Day holiday weekend, customers can fuel up for the unofficial last weekend of summer and receive the deal directly at the pump.

“It’s been a challenging summer for travel, so we want to thank our customers for their loyalty by offering them additional savings ahead of the busy holiday weekend, ending the summer on a high note,” said Nathan Woodland, head of North America category fuels at Circle K, with U.S. offices in Charlotte, N.C. “Our Circle K Fuel Day will also kick off an entire month of deals inside our stores.”

As summer winds down and customers head back to school and work, they can expect more deals inside the convenience stores throughout September on fresh food, coffee, snacks and more, the company said.  The fuel sale will only be available at participating Circle K locations that sell Circle K-branded fuel. Circle K fuel is now available in more than half of Circle K’s fueling locations across America.

Couche-Tard’s 26-country global network includes approximately 9,300 c-stores in North America, with more than 7,100 in the United States, mainly under the Circle K and Holiday Stationstores banners, and approximately 2,100 in Canada under the Circle K, Mac’s and Couche-Tard banners. In Europe, under the Circle K and other banners, Couche-Tard operates a retail network in Scandinavia, Ireland, Poland, the Baltics and Russia including more than 2,700 stores and unmanned automated fuel stations. And under licensing agreements, more than 2,200 stores operate under the Circle K banner in 15 other countries and territories (Cambodia, Egypt, Guam, Guatemala, Honduras, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Jamaica, Macau, Mexico, Mongolia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Vietnam). This brings Laval, Quebec-based Couche-Tard’s worldwide total network to approximately 14,200 mostly Circle K-branded c-stores, of which approximately 10,800 offer motor fuel.
