Fuel rebranding will bring Mobil to Canada

TORONTO -- Brookfield Business Partners LP has closed its transaction to acquire Loblaw Cos. Ltd.’s gas-station operations for approximately $540 million ($427.5 million U.S.).

The gas stations will continue to allow customers to collect PC points through Loblaw's PC Plus loyalty program and by using PC Financial products.
