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

Fuel back on track at NK

Pace Fuelcare have responded to the plight of NK Service Station in Princethorpe, Warwickshire, which scored a rather lowly 1.5 star rating in last month's Shop Doctor.

In the surgery this month - Stans Superstore & Forecourt, St Martins, Shropshire

GENERAL APPEARANCE: Stans Superstore, located in the village of St Martins just off the A5 between Wrexham and Oswestry, is a phenomenal family-run independent enterprise. The Superstore is massive (28,000sq ft) and includes a wide range of fresh food, a gift shop, restaurant, garden centre and a significant range (some 80 lines) sourced from local suppliers. As part of its promotional campaign last year, Stans Superstore claimed it was selling the 'cheapest petrol in Britain'. This, in part, was achieved by money-off fuel coupons given when you spent certain amounts in the main store. My focus was the forecourt clearly identified by its Jet-branded pole.
