BOISE, Idaho — Stinker Stores Inc. has acquired J.H. Kaspar Oil Co. The transaction includes one truckstop, three convenience stores, two cardlocks and a bulk fuel and lubricants business in Wyoming, the company announced.

The company will rebrand the four retail locations, it said.

“I’m excited to grow our footprint in Wyoming with the purchase of J.H. Kaspar. The company is a natural fit for Stinker with its team of high-performing employees and customer-centric culture," said Charley Jones, owner of Boise, Idaho-based Stinker Stores.

“It took some time to find the right buyer," said Joe Kaspar, owner of Rawlins-based J.H. Kaspar Oil. "This company was started by my father in 1958. I’ve known our customers and employees for decades and they are an extension of my family. As I got to know the Stinker team, it was clear to me that they would embrace what we created and continue our culture. It was just a natural fit, and I’m excited about the opportunities and resources that will now be available to our team.”
