Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community
Spar wholesaler opens new site
Published:  28 September, 2016

A new Shell petrol station and Spar supermarket in Southport, Merseyside, is being opened by G&E Murgatroyd, the retail arm of Spar’s northern England wholesaler James Hall.

The store is on the former Duerdens car showroom on Roe Lane, and is due to open at 7am on Thursday September 29, with the creation of 15 new jobs.

Company stores director Julie McAulay said: “We are really excited about opening our new Spar store on Roe Lane, which in addition to a great range of products and services, also includes a butchery counter run by local butcher Graham Eyes and a delicatessen.”

In July James Hall & Co acquired North East Convenience Stores (NECS), a 30-store family owned chain based in the North East of England. G&E Murgatroyd owns 114 Spar stores across the north of England.

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?
