Royal Dutch Shell Plc  .com Rotating Header Image Circle K and Shell trade brands

Circle K Stores Inc., with the Kangaroo labeled convenience stores, named after an Australian marsupial animal, is actually owned by a Canadian company with a French name that made a deal with a Dutch company about stores in Florida, among other states.

That’s why Circle K stations either have converted or are converting their gas pumps to Shell pumps.

Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc, the Canadians, purchased and made arrangements with  Shell Oil, the Dutch (that’s officially the Netherlands) to buy 127 Shell stations in Florida. Of those, 46 sit in Southwest Florida.

The rest are in Tampa and Orlando.

The fuel at the former Shell stations will stay Shell and the Circle K stores will now also sell Shell gas. The convenience stores will keep the Kangaroo brand.

One example of the conversion of Circle K pumps to Shell pumps sits at the Cape Coral intersection of Del Prado Boulevard and Pine Island Road.
