ERO is a terrible company that treats their employees like dirt. Glad it came back around.

I don't think they are closing all of them .
The ready-mart chevrons I use in my area of town are only changing brands of gasoline that they sell..

Doesn't that mean they cannot retain the Chevron name on the station?

Chevron does the gas and logo. They do not run the Redi-Marts or own them. A separate entity. Therefore, their logo has to be taken down with a change in brand and gasoline. The stations don't want to be sued for false advertising, so to speak. They got a better deal on gasoline and changed "brands"/additives.

Check out the "New...Change is Coming" signs on some of those Redi-Marts. And now the new station names that have taken over. Can't remember the moniker off-hand as I won't use their gas.

Me either, their gas doesn't give me any better or worse mileage than the other brands I've tried so far.
