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

'Cluck & Collect' site

17 July, 2016

Jet's Border Cars forecourt in Dumfries has gone the 'eggstra' mile by introducing a collection service with a difference: an egg vending machine. Border Cars believes it is the first forecourt in Scotland to introduce this 'cluck and collect' service but it doesn't think it will be the last as, just two weeks since installation, it's proving popular and attracting forecourt footfall.

The concept is simple: customers insert five one pound coins and one of the 28 doors pops open to reveal a carton of 30 fresh, free-range medium eggs supplied by Nith Valley Eggs. The computer-controlled vending machine is located on the forecourt so Border Cars' customers can buy fresh eggs even when the store is closed. The eggs are delivered from the farm to the refrigerated vending machine within 48 hours and stamped with the best before date.
