London & South East: 4mlpa plus
06 October, 2017

Budgens Three Mile Cross, Berkshire

Awards host Myleene Klass, and Ramsay MacDonald, Gulf retail director (far left), present Jonathan (right) and Nick Fraser with the award for Best Site in London & the South East (4mlpa plus).

Budgens Three Mile Cross was re-opened last year with a 3,000sq ft shop, eight fuel pumps and 19 parking bays. It has an excellent comprehensive Budgens convenience store which recognises that to succeed today's forecourts have to be shops that sell fuel rather than service stations with shops. Fresh food is key, as are the seven Cook freezers.
