After eight months of negotiations, the Boise-based Stinker Stores, will be adding 14 Albertsons Express fuel centers to their roster sometime in coming months. This will expand the Stinker empire to 65 stores.
The stores will be converted to Stinker Stores, but the fuel rewards program Albertsons customers use for discounts will continue. Stinker Stores president Charley Jones told KTVB the whole schebang will be complete by November.
"We are excited about the opportunity to grow the Stinker brand and proud to partner with Albertsons in continuing the very successful Fuel Rewards program," Jones said in a written statement. "To us, buying local and being green is more than just a nice idea—it is the way we do business."
