Stripes Stores was a chain of 700+ convenience stores in Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. These locations are former Circle K and Town & Country Food Stores. Other convenience store brands they operate under include IceBox and Quick Stuff. It is one of the largest non-refining operators of convenience stores in the USA.[1]

In late 2017 all stripes locations in Louisiana, New Mexico, and Oklahoma were sold to Seven Eleven. Seven Eleven set out to buy the Texas locations as well but could not get around a non compete agreement they have with the Seven Eleven franchisees in the State of Texas.

In early 2018 however, the Texas locations were sold. They are being renamed "Cal's".

Many locations offer Sunoco, Chevron, Conoco, Exxon, Phillips 66, Shell, Texaco, Valero, and unbranded gasoline; most locations previously sold gasoline under the CITGO name, when the chain was Circle K. More than 300 locations also feature the proprietary Laredo Taco Company brand of Mexican fast food, or Country Cookin' branded fast food.

In 2007 the company acquired the Town & Country Food Stores chain and in August 2009, the company acquired 25 Quick Stuff convenience stores in Texas and Louisiana from Jack in the Box Inc.

In 2014, they were acquired by Energy Transfer Partners, the parent company of the east coast gas brand Sunoco.[2]

The headquarters are located in Corpus Christi, Texas.
