Penny Petroleum Spar store

Penny Petroleum is moving a further eight of its Scottish c-stores to Spar.

The fuel group’s Auld Brig, Tam o Shanter, Garvock, Nellfield, Camelon, Rumford, Armadale and Bonnybridge sites will switch to the CJ Lang-supplied fascia over the next six months, joining existing Spar-badged stores in Ayr and Kirkmuirhill.

There will be a focus on expanding food-to-go; fresh and frozen food ranges; and beer, wine and spirits.

Mike Leonard, CJ Lang & Son Ltd Sales Director, said: “With our best-in-class chilled offer, our vision for food-to-go, our unrivalled distribution network, as well as our dedicated account management and support team, we are confident that we can grow the Scottish arm of Penny Petroleum.”

Vicky Hennessy, Business Development Manager at Penny Petroleum, added: “Spar has been proactive in helping us engage with our communities, including product launch days and healthy eating for local schools. Their team are passionate about helping us achieve our goals, and they deploy their team to get the best from each store so we all work together.”
