EG Group opens new Spar store and forecourt in Whitburn

Petrol forecourt retailer EG Group has opened a new Spar convenience store and forecourt at junction 4A off the M8 at the Heartlands Business Park, Whitburn.

Heartlands is on the site of a former coal mine and has undergone a large regeneration project.

The 3,000sq ft Spar Scotland store has a host of food-to-go options including sandwiches, hot and cold rolls and pastries, as well as a Starbucks unit and Greggs bakery. It also features fresh produce, Lottery and Paypoint services, and free WiFi.

The forecourt has 10 lanes and two HGV lanes, as well as dedicated parking for shoppers. It also features an external ATM and is open 24 hours, 7 days a week.

Mike Leonard, Sales Director at Spar Scotland, said: “The Heartlands Business Park is a recent addition to our partnership with EG Group. The new opening of the Spar store has created jobs and will be a great addition to the towns in the surrounding area.

“The site is a great stop off point when travelling across the central belt of Scotland as it sits exactly half ways between Edinburgh and Glasgow.”
