Who we are

Holiday began as a family-owned business with a passion for serving customers by being a dependable part of their everyday lives. Today, Holiday continues that tradition as part of a global network of convenience stores.

Our history

In 1928, on borrowed money, brothers Arthur and Alfred Erickson opened a general store in Centuria, Wisconsin. Their policy of "the best goods and the finest possible customer service" made their little store a big success. Additional stores were opened in both Wisconsin and Minnesota. With extra money to invest, the brothers got into the petroleum business and in 1939, the first Holiday was opened in Lindstrom, Minnesota. The company grew to become the 18th largest convenience store chain in the United States. It ranked 133rd on Forbes' list of America's largest private companies, with over 500 locations in 10 states, plus two food commissaries, a fuel terminal and a car wash network.

Winning team

In 2017, Holiday was acquired by Alimentation Couche-Tard, one of the world’s leading convenience retailers, and became part of the Circle K family of stores. Couche-Tard developed Circle K into a global brand, represented in over 20 countries. It’s one of the most recognized convenience stores, known worldwide for quality products and great customer service. Holiday is proud to join a team that is just as committed to providing the finest possible customer service as the Erickson brothers were back in 1928.
