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

Forecourt sites win two Londis awards

Two forecourts picked up awards when Londis announced the winners of its annual Store of the Year awards.

The award for the Londis Forecourt of the Year 2015 was presented to Brian and Joan Charlton of Londis Middleton Service Station, Pickering, North Yorkshire.

In addition Certas Energy won the award for the Londis Multiple Account Store of the Year 2015 for its flagship company owned Carronvale Service Station, Main Street, Larbert, in Falkirk, Scotland. Each store received £2,000 in prize money,

Commenting on the multiple account award, company owned service stations business manager Scott Harris said that since switching to Gulf and introducing the Londis convenience store, Carronvale had evolved from a sterile shop to a one-stop-shop for fuel and grocery shopping

He said it was competing with the supermarkets in terms of price, and beating them for convenience and customer service. From 2014 to 2015 shop sales were up 54% and the site's average weekly fuel volume had increased by 20%.

He added: "This is a real boost for the team, true recognition for all their hard work and commitment to developing this site into the bright, fresh and welcoming site it has become."
