Aficiandos of Hess toy trucks can rest assured that Christmas sales of their toy trucks will continue at the corporation's convenience stores.
Recent headlines announcing Hess Corporation's exit from the energy marketing and refining end of its global business will not affect what is perhaps its second-most-coveted consumer item after the petrol: the Hess Toy Truck. "The toy trucks which have been a tradition for 48 years will continue," a Hess spokesperson said, adding that "this November, the company will continue to sell the trucks at their stores." Since 1964, Hess Corporation has sold its classic toy trucks; offering a variety of collectible miniature trucks to consumers at the start of the holiday season each year in November. Despite the corporation's impending closure of its 1,350 retail gas stations, consumers will still be able to find the eclectic toys at Hess …
The oil company that's selling off its retail gas stations said the accompanying convenience stores are being sold along with them
Hess spokesman Dennis Moynihan wants it made clear: Hess is not closing the convenience stores that operate along with their gas stations. "What does that mean? We're not closing our convenience stores," Moynihan said Tuesday in an effort to clarify the record. When the news broke on Monday that Hess would be divesting itself of its retail gasoline stations and other retail operations to focus on oil development and exploration, Moynihan said many people were under the impression that the convenience stores would be closing. Nothing, he emphasized, could be further from the truth. "That means we're looking for different ownership opportunities. It didn't mean we are going to own the stores," but it means whoever the buyer is of the Hess …

The Woodbridge-based oil business will now divest itself of 1,350 gas stations, many of which operate in New Jersey and 17 other Eastern Seaboard states.

The move will affect 1,350 gas stations - many owned by Hess itself - that operate in 18 states on the Eastern Seaboard. The gas stations serve as many as 1.3 million customers a day, according to a report in Supermarket News.

The hungry in New Jersey got more food to eat, in part because of Stop & Shop and their customers. The supermarket chain announced that they donated more than $29 million nationwide in 2012 through the goodwill of customers, vendors, and store employees.
