David Clement at James Hall & Co’s Accrington site: Texaco will continue to play an important role in our future too

Spar wholesaler James Hall & Co has switched six of its company-owned forecourts in northern England from Texaco to Shell.

The Preston-based fifth generation family-owned business describes the changeover as “a strategic reshuffling of the company’s forecourt portfolio to maximise the value it delivers”, and adds that Texaco still has a “significant presence” in its 47-strong company-owned forecourt estate.

The forecourts making the switch all have Spar convenience stores and are at Accrington in Lancashire, Barnton in Cheshire, High Hill and Milnthorpe in Cumbria, Rochdale in Greater Manchester and Threshfield in North Yorkshire.

David Clement, forecourt development manager at James Hall & Co, says: “We have an excellent working relationship with Shell and the changeover is a positive development between the two companies.

“The strategy that is being rolled out is one that has considered the company’s forecourt position at present, and what it will look like in the future as the business delivers its growth plan in the years ahead.

“Shell’s livery at our company-owned forecourts will be key to achieving our ambitions going forward, and Texaco will continue to play an important role in our success in the future too.”
