Ayrshire-based Jet forecourt owner Brian Connolly, who opened the first Jet and Spar dual-branded site, has bought a second service station, in the market town of Dalmellington, 10 miles from his first forecourt at Maybole. The new site is located on the Galloway tourist route, which runs from the A74(M) at Gretna to Ayr and is popular with caravans and bikers.

The 3mlpa Jet-supplied forecourt has eight nozzles and a separate fast delivery diesel pump. Bunkering fuel is popular with HGV vehicles, which wasn’t an option for Maybole due to lack of space. The 1,000sq ft c-store is currently supplied by Booker.

Jet has supplied Dalmellington’s fuel for more than 15 years and, when he bought the site, Brian signed a new five-year contract with them.

He explained: "Jet has been my supplier at Maybole for some 13 years now and has never once let me down. Jet’s offer is competitive and I know that I can rely on them to help me mirror the success of Jet Maybole."
