The new owner is a Canadian company behind the Circle K convenience store chain. The purchase price has not been disclosed. Holland Oil began with the first service station Chuck Holland opened in 1954. The company now has 54 gas-station-and-convenience-store locations throughout the region. In recent years, the business has been headed by Holland's daughter, Lisa Holland Toth. Her husband, who's a senior vice president, says the family is very sad to be selling but didn't think the reins could be passed to a third generation. The buyer hasn't said whether the Holland stores will be converted to Circle K's.
