High Noon Stores, which operates 12 convenience stores and forecourts across South Wales and south-west England, has bought a new lease on The Halt at Doldowlod in Llandrindod Wells.

The forecourt with Mace branded store, Post Office and restaurant had been operated by the Lawrence and Zamroz families for over 17 years.

Speaking for the family, Rita Lawrence said: "We had excellent support from Christie & Co and are delighted that the store has passed to an experienced independent chain of convenience stores with high standards."
