Hess Corp. finally after all the speculation said Thursday, May 22nd that it is selling its gas stations and convenience stores. One major thing they did so that all the Hess Toy Truck collectors out there could breathe a sigh of relief is announce that it will continue selling the toy trucks it has marketed each holiday season since 1964.
The toy truck has become a collector's item and tradition for some families. A Hess toy truck float is even included in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The 2014 holiday truck, which has not yet been announced, will be sold at the 1,342 Hess locations along the East Coast. After this year, the company will continue selling the Hess toy trucks online.
Hess sold its retail business to Marathon Petroleum Corp. so that it can focus on exploration and production, according to a statement from the company. The deal was for $2.6 billion.
