Two more forecourts for Cardigan

16 September, 2010

Both Sainsbury and Tesco plan to open new forecourts in Cardigan, west Wales.

Tesco wants to double the size of its store in the town and create a new petrol station. Apparently the retail giant has bought land near to the store at New Mill Road to provide the space for the forecourt. Company executives have confirmed that a separate planning application will be submitted soon.

Despite outcry from local traders a Tesco spokeswoman said it was important for the community to have a 24-hour petrol service.

Meanwhile, a revised planning application has also been lodged by Sainsbury’s, which includes a petrol station and a 40,000sq ft supermarket.
