Sibley, Iowa — A gas and oil company based in Sibley, with locations across the area has purchased another convenience store.
Cooperative Energy Company, owner and operator of Jackrabbit Junction in Sibley and Interstate Cenex in Worthington, has added a third convenience store at Milford.
Cooperative Energy, a Cenex refined fuels, diesel and lubricant distributor across northwest Iowa and southwest Minnesota has purchased Boji Junction. They took over management of the store on Monday, August 12. They also just opened a Spencer/Everly/Lakes area fuel, diesel and lubricant delivery center just north of Spencer.
Cooperative Energy general manager Brian Dreessen says that Boji Junction fits right into the geographical growth plan on which Cooperative Energy has been concentrating for the last 12 months. He says that Boji Junction will continue much as before, but it will be connected to Cooperative Energy’s computer system so members can use their local Cooperative Energy priority cards there as well as at all other Cooperative Energy Cardtrol locations.
This is the first time Cooperative Energy has purchased an existing convenience store location. The cooperative has made other purchases in the past, however, including the East Lyon Cooperative in Little Rock in 2003 and Lyon County Coop Oil in Rock Rapids in 2010.
Dreessen says there will be no physical change to Boji Junction but new and returning customers can expect Cooperative Energy’s “committed personal service.” He also says their members can look forward to patronage refunds on their purchases as well.
In addition to the locations already mentioned, Cooperative Energy also has locations in Hartley, Ashton, Harris, Melvin, Ocheyedan, Fulda, Rushmore, Hills, and an additional location in Worthington.
