Murco has completed 140 shop refits on company-owned sites with shopfitting contractor Shopmate over three years.

With an overall budget of £2.5m, the refit programme has progressed at a rate of two per week. The majority are 600-800sq ft, with some up to 2,000sq ft.

Gary Pearce, Murco’s network manager for shops, said: "Shopmate understands us and our business. Nothing is too much trouble."
