The nationwide rebranding of Topaz service stations and forecourts as ‘Circle K’ has commenced, with the Canadian operator announcing a €55m investment and the creation of 240 new jobs.

Circle-K is owned by Alimentation Couche-Tard, which purchased Topaz in 2016 from the businessman Denis O’Brien. €30m is set to be invested in the development of four new sites, in Wicklow, Athlone and two in Kildare.

The investment in these new sites, alongside newly developed Circle Ks beside the M1 in Dublin, and Junction 14 on the M8 in Fermoy will create a total of 240 jobs – 90 full-time and 150 part-time. In total, Circle K will employ just under 2,400 people around Ireland.

Over the next 18 to 24 months, 420+ service stations will be rebranded from Topaz to Circle K. The existing food offerings in-store will continue as is, but the Re.Store retail brand will discontinued.

Niall Anderson, Circle K’s MD in Ireland, said he was grateful to all existing staff. “I am also very grateful to the independent retailers; we are lucky to work with them.”

Welcome to Ireland, Circle K!
