EG Group opens Peterhead site

Forecourt retailer EG Group has opened a new Spar convenience store and forecourt at the Buchan Gateway Retail Park in Peterhead, Aberdeenshire.

The site, located on the A90, has 10 lanes, a drive-thru Starbucks, and dedicated parking for shoppers.

The 3,000sq ft Spar convenience store has an external ATM and is open 24 hours, 7 days a week. It also offers a host of food-to-go options including sandwiches, hot and cold rolls, and pastries, as well as a Greggs bakery. Other in-store services include lottery, PayPoint, and free WiFi. The store employs 10 people from the local area.

Mike Leonard, Sales Director for Spar Scotland, said: “We are broadening our reach and distribution around Scotland, and we will continue to grow the business and explore new opportunities.”

The build took over a year to complete.
