Poultney and Fair Haven area residents may have noticed a change to two of their local businesses recently. The familiar filling stations at 267 Main Street in Poultney and 38 Main Street in Fair Haven have a new look and a new brand of gasoline, Irving.
Frank Trombetta of Midway Oil has opened Poultney and Fair Haven's first Irving Oil gas stations, expanding the regional brand to the community.
"Midway Oil is a locally owned, family operated Vermont business that has served the community since 1925," said Trombetta. "Irving Oil's reputation of being a family-owned company with a deep community commitment fell in line with our values and motivated us to join the brand. Their growth in Vermont has been particularly impressive. We are excited to expand the Irving brand here and are looking forward to continuing to serve the members of our community."
Midway Oil is owned by the Trombetta and Merone families. The company supplies fuel for 53 gas stations and owns 20 locations in Vermont and upstate New York.
Irving Oil, based just north of Maine in Atlantic Canada is a leading energy refiner and marketer currently growing across the Northeast. The Poultney and Fair Haven stores are two of several new sites to recently open in the state. The Poultney Snack Shop is located adjacent to Green Mountain College and offers complete convenience store service with a variety of products at competitive prices including, Irving clean gasoline, Green Mountain Coffee, beer, wine, and tobacco products.
The Fair Haven Smart Shop offers similar competitive prices and features a Dunkin' Donuts satellite in the store. Both stores participate in Irving's gas savings program with Shaw's Supermarkets.
The new Irving Oil stations on 267 Main St. in Poultney and 38 Main St. in Fair Haven are open for business. A grand opening celebration to welcome new and returning customers is expected in the coming weeks.
