The Corner Store name has existed since the early 80's, from driving around Texas during that timeframe. Yes, they rebranded it in the very late 90's, but it has been around for quite a while.
I suspect the name will continue for a while longer, as will Holiday, because Couche-Tard doesn't seem to be in a big hurry to rebrand, seeing as they are still running stores under Kangaroo, which finalized some time back.
Moderator Note:Let's try to steer the discussion back to Holiday, as that's the thread. If you want to talk about CST, there is another thread for that. It can be found at this link.
