Imperial Oil will sell 497 Esso retail stations to five fuel distributors in Canada for $2.8B, the company said this week. Distributors purchasing sites include Alimentation Couche-Tard for Ontario and Quebec stations, 7-Eleven Canada in Alberta and BC, Harnois Groupe pétrolier in Quebec, Parkland Fuel Corp in Saskatchewan and Manitoba, and Wilson Fuel Co for stations in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.
