Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community

Lidl purchases Esso site – but has no intention of selling fuel

15 January, 2016

Lidl’s purchase of an Esso site in Balderton, Nottinghamshire does not signal its entry into the UK forecourt market. A spokesperson for the discounter confirmed the intention was to demolish the filling station to make way for a supermarket.

Last year Lidl demolished a Co-op Food Store on an adjoining site in Balderton and this land, together with the Esso site land, will be used to build a 2,470sq m store instead of the 2,004sq m shop it had originally proposed.
According to the Newark Advertiser, Lidl said it hoped to begin work in July, with a view to opening the store early next year.

When a major car manufacturer like Ford predicts that sales of its electrified cars will outnumber petrol and diesel models by 2022, does that ring alarm bells about the possible speed of change for forecourts?
