MEDFORD, Wis. — Medford Cooperative has purchased a Clark-branded gas station and convenience store in Stetsonville, Wis., as well as the bulk fuel operations in Medford, Wis., from Stetsonville Oil Co. Inc.
The seller’s tire and auto business is not a part of the sale and will continue operations at a new location in Stetsonville. The companies expect the transition of ownership to take place in July. The team at Medford Cooperative is working closely with the Stetsonville Oil team to ensure a smooth transition over the next several weeks.
The station and convenience store will continue to operate under the Clark brand.
The acquisition of Stetsonville Oil will enable Medford Cooperative to gain better buying power with suppliers while providing increased service to customers, it said.
“We would like to welcome the employees and customers of Stetsonville Oil to the Medford Cooperative family,” said Chris Piotrowski, Medford Cooperative CEO and general manager. “We are excited to join the Stetsonville community in the coming weeks. We want to invite community members to join the Medford Cooperative so that they can begin enjoying the benefits of being a member.”
Benefits include receiving cash back, donations to local non-profit organizations and exclusive member discounts and deals. Membership is free.
Medford Cooperative is a member-owned producer cooperative founded in 1911, making it one of the oldest cooperatives in Wisconsin. The cooperative is diversified with departments in agriculture (feed/grain and agronomy), energy (refined fuels and propane) and retail (grocery, hardware and convenience stores).
