FT - Spar Lostock Hall-1

Spar Lostock Hall

A major overhaul of a forecourt and Spar store at Lostock Hall, south of Preston in Lancashire, has been completed by Spar wholesaler and retailer James Hall & Co.

The company has reconfigured the forecourt site to allow for a larger Spar store and additional facilities for local residents.

The forecourt site includes four Shell fuel pumps, nine car parking spaces, air and vacuum facilities.

The 3,000sq ft Spar store features an extensive range of everyday essentials alongside a new Graham Eyes High Class Butchers counter, Clayton Park Deli, Tango Ice Blast machine and Cheeky Coffee offering.

Fiona Drummond, company owned stores director at James Hall & Co, said: “We are thrilled to unveil the new Spar Lostock Hall site and are confident that customers will enjoy the additional facilities and modern feel of the store.

“As many supermarkets are closing their deli and meat counters, we have found an increase in Spar customers looking to pick up high-quality meat and fresh food-to-go from their local convenience store, and Graham Eyes’ trusted family brand has proved very popular with Spar customers in Warton and our company owned Southport stores.”

She added: “With LED lighting and energy saving fridges, this store is an investment for Lostock Hall’s community for years to come and we look forward to welcoming new and existing customers to their new store.”

The new Spar store and forecourt site has created 28 jobs for local people, and will be open 6am to 11pm seven days a week.
