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

Essar seeks partners for flagship project

Essar Oil UK is looking to build on its retail brand by developing a leading edge, new-build Roadside Retail location, opposite the entrance to its Stanlow Refinery in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire. The company is keen to use this retail investment to highlight its brand and would welcome interest from retail partners in both developing the retail offer and in running the business with it.

The one-acre site, situated on the busy A5117 road between the M56 and M53 motorways, was previously a small forecourt, but will be transformed into Essar's flagship vision for retail in the coming months.

The development will comprise a 4,000sq ft c-store and five fuelling islands four for retail and one for HGV. There will be parking for about 25 cars and space for up to four electric charging points.

SB Prasad, chief commercial officer, retail at Essar, explained: "This development has been two years in the planning and marks the next stage in the evolution of our retail brand offering and is a real statement of intent."
