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

Central C-Stores opens its 16th forecourt site

Palmer and Harvey-owned Central Convenience Stores has acquired its 16th forecourt with the purchase of Combe Martin Petrol Station in north Devon. The acquisition takes its total estate of stores to 116.

Commercial estate agent, Charles Darrow, sold the business on behalf of Andy West, who is now concentrating on his property developments in Combe Martin.

According to Darrow, West once owned 50 petrol filling stations in the South West and supplied fuel to a further 50 petrol stations.

He said: "As with all petrol filling station sales that we handle, they generate a great deal of competitive interest and Combe Martin Petrol Station was no exception.We are delighted to work with Central Convenience Stores again and I'm sure they will continue to increase their number of stores over the next few years. They prefer village, rural or estate stores over town centre high streets and this is another perfect location for them."

Central Convenience Stores is opening an average of one store a week.
