Blakemore combines Greggs and Subway at new Spar forecourt
Published:  14 November, 2014

Blakemore Retail has opened a new purpose-built petrol forecourt store in Louth, Lincolnshire.

The store, situated on the Fairfield Industrial Estate, is the first of Blakemore Retail’s sites to combine a Spar convenience offer with both Greggs and Subway franchises.

Blakemore Retail managing director Geoff Hallam said: “This new development involves a substantial investment from the company and is part of an ongoing programme of investment in our stores estate, involving both the acquisition of new stores and renovation of existing ones.

“The Greggs and Subway concessions, with their well-known and trusted brands, should help drive sales and footfall as well as ensure that the store appeals to a wide demographic, including commuters and the local neighbourhood.”

The store also offers Costa Coffee and additional services include a free-to-use cash machine, PayPoint and National Lottery.

The Shell petrol station features two HGV fast-fill pumps, eight standard fuel pumps, a jet wash and three electric car charging points. Approximately 30 parking spaces are available for visitors to the site.

Store manager Michele Lawson commented: “As Louth’s first 24-hour forecourt I’m confident that the store will prove to be a great asset to the town.”
