February 2019 – Two new stores acquired for Valor’s HOP SHOP brand

Continuing its growth desire, Valor Oil has added two new stores to the HOP SHOPS portfolio. On March 1st, 2019, two Sunoco branded locations will begin flying the HOP SHOP badges. “We had been out of the COCO (Company Operated Company Owned) business since 2006 and dove back in during our acquisition of Harper Oil in 2018. The Harper deal added 9 locations and today’s deal will bring us up to 11 stores. We have had an exceptional start getting back into COCO stores and believe we have brought on the right management to extend the portfolio. Tim Dupin, our Director of Stores, has been a key player in our success so we wanted to give him more room to grow.” says Josh Emmick, Valor’s Executive Vice President. Another Valor team member, Chris Jump, has also been promoted to assist Tim Dupin in managing the day to day responsibilities of the HOP SHOP brand. “We are blessed to be adding so many family members to our team. Our Valor family will now consist of 200+ people.”

The two new locations are:
*430 Mount Zion Road, Florence, KY which is just one exit down the interstate from an existing HOP SHOP.
*3189 Western Row Road, Maineville, OH which is on the Kings Island exit.
