Bedford Exxon become Bedford Gulf

The Bedford Exxon at 349 Great Road has become a Gulf. As you can see here, workers quickly replaced the old Exxon Signs with Gulf. The gas station recently become part of the Cumberland Farms Dealer Network.

Cumberland Farms bought close to 500 Gulf Stations in 1985. In 2003, Cumberland Farms purchased 200 Exxon Stations from ConocoPhilips. According to a Bedford store manager, Cumberland Farms is now in the process of converting most of the Exxon stations to the Gulf brand.

Although the name is changing, the convenience store will not undergo any major changes.

While the pumps have been changed over to Gulf Gas and some very minor revisions are planned, the Dunkin' Donuts will remain. The Gas Station is expected to be open the same hours (Mon-Sat 5AM-11PM and Sun 5AM-10PM) as bedfore.

Now that the Exxon name is available again, it will be interesting to see if the recently re-opened old "Citgo" station switches over to the Exxon or Mobil brand.

The last vestiges of the Exxon Station.
