Lanark site off to a flying start

FUEL brand Jet has a new spot in Scotland’s central belt after Penny Petroleum chose the brand for its Kirkmuirhill Service Station site in Lanark.

The forecourt at Kirkmuirhill now sports Jet’s latest branding on its canopy, stanchion, pumps and polesign.

Penny Petroleum, which purchased the village site in March of this year, has revamped the forecourt, complete with Jet’s latest branding on the canopy, stanchion, pumps and polesign.

In addition to new look fascia and branding, the site now incorporates a food-to-go offer from local baker Aulds, as well as Costa Express, an off licence, a range of fresh food, slushie machine and a customer toilet.

Penny Petroleum is also currently engaged in a six month £250,000 investment at the site which will see the forecourt retailer install new pumps and revamp the store interior.

Other changes in the pipeline include the addition of Lottery and PayPoint as well as the introduction of Jet’s premium diesel offer Sentinel.

David Penny, owner of Penny Petroleum, commented on the firm’s relationship with Jet. He said: “Jet has supplied some of our sites in the north of England for a number of years, so we’re very familiar with the brand and the team at Jet.

“When we bought Kirkmuirhill in March this year, we decided to switch from the existing supplier to Jet as Jet offered a competitive deal and the brand image is bright and fresh, which is just what the site needed as it was looking quite tired and outdated.

“Also, we chose Spar as our symbol group for the site and felt that the Jet and Spar brands complemented each other well.”
