EG Group Spar Heartlands Business Park, Whitburn , Scotland

EG Group has opened a new Shell forecourt site with a 3,000sq ft Spar store at junction 4A off the M8 at the Heartlands Business Park, Whitburn in Scotland.

The new forecourt has 10 lanes and two HGV lanes as well as dedicated parking for shoppers and an external ATM. The site operates round the clock, 7 days a week.

The Spar Scotland store has food-to-go options including sandwiches, hot and cold rolls and pastries, and there is also a Starbucks unit and Greggs bakery.

Heartlands is on the site of a former coal mine and has undergone a large regeneration project.

Mike Leonard, sales director at Spar Scotland, said: “The Heartlands Business Park is a recent addition to our partnership with EG Group. The new opening of the Spar store has created jobs and will be a great addition to the towns in the surrounding area.

“The site is a great stop off point when travelling across the central belt of Scotland as it sits exactly half ways between Edinburgh and Glasgow.”
