Maverik will close three Boise stores, plans four new ones

In a news release Thursday, Maverik, Inc. announced it plans to open 26 new stores around the Intermountain West, including four in Boise.

The company did not say where the new stores will be or when they would open, but it did list three Boise stores expected to close March 5. Those stores are located at 5200 Chinden Blvd., 1909 W. Boise Ave. and 9030 W. Franklin Road.

“While the decision to close these three stores was difficult, it was necessary for our continued growth in the Boise community,” Aaron Simpson, vice president of Maverik, said in the news release. “Maverik is committed to treating all team members affected by these closures with respect and remaining entirely open about the process taking place.”

Employees at the three Boise stores to be closed will get employment opportunities within the company, the news release said.
