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

New Budgens forecourt claims UK first

07 October, 2010

A new Budgens forecourt has opened in Yeovil this week and will be the first in the UK to offer a media screen system at its petrol pumps.


The BP forecourt offers 10 new filling pumps, each with the new German manufactured media screen, which will welcome customers and display various information including Budgens store offers. Offering real food for today’s communities is key to the Budgens brand and the new store will offer its customers a wide range of products and services including hot food, coffee, freshly baked items, fresh and chilled produce, wine and beer (including a local Scrumpy), lottery, ATM, car wash - all available 24 hours, seven days a week, with ample parking for Budgens customers.

Entrepreneur and owner Edward Seaton, who runs the family business, which has been operating since 1929, said: "The new store is fantastic, the staff are 100% behind us and, with Budgens as a partner, we’re aiming high. We want our Budgens store to be more than a place to pick up a few items along with fuel, our quest is to become the local store of choice for customers to undertake their full weekly shop in White Post."

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?
