Founded in 1939 by Chester K. “Chet” Campbell, Campbell Oil Co. began by delivering fuel by horse-drawn wagons. It opened its first c-store in 1985 and today operates more than 50 locations under the BellStores name and sells Marathon-branded fuel.
BellStores prides itself on cleanliness, friendly service and competitive prices. Newer stores have beer caves, a drive-thru grocery pickup window, a car wash and gasoline and diesel fuel. In addition to offering the Bell’s Bistro proprietary program of salads and subs, some stores are co-branded with Subway, Dairy Queen and Domino’s quick-service restaurants.
