Sixteen jobs have been created with the opening of a new BP service station with M&S Simply Food on Grampian Road, Aviemore, on August 30.

Approximately £2m has been spent on the site, which in addition to the fuel and shop includes a toilet accessible to disabled people, a baby changing-room, onsite parking and ATM facilities.

Brian Shirley, BP district manager, said: “The new store and introduction of the M&S Simply Food range means we have been able to create 16 new jobs for people in the local area. It’ll be open 24/7 providing customers with four grades of fuel, as well as a selected range of Marks & Spencer’s high-quality fresh, innovative food alongside the best of BP fuels and our own Wild Bean Café.”

The first customers at the new site will also receive a range of discounts and a free ‘bag for life’ to help their future shopping.

The first BP M&S Simply Food store was opened in 2005 at BP Hammersmith in London. There are now more than 230 in the UK.
