Spar Mosstlodoch Service Station opens

Retailer Suraj Thapa has opened a store and service station in Mosstlodoch, Moray.

The convenience store features a post office and a large food-to-go area, including Costa Coffee, Rollover Hot Dogs, Tango Ice Blast, and Fwip Ice Cream, as well as a hot food-to-go counter. The store has a huge off licence section providing an extensive range of spirits and malt whiskies. Paypoint and an ATM are also available for customers to use.

In addition, the JET-branded forecourt has six lanes and car parking for 20 cars, and provides a car wash, vacuum, and air.

The forecourt is the latest forecourt and store to be serviced by wholesaler CJ Lang & Son.

Thapa said: “We have owned the store for over two years, and we are delighted to have transformed it into a fantastic Spar store. As well as our huge range of malt whiskies, we are stocking a large range of food-to-go, a larger chill range and also local suppliers like Baxters, Sinclair’s and Murdoch’s. We are very excited to be able to offer a fantastic new Spar store and forecourt to the local residents of Mosstlodoch and to those driving through this northerly area of Scotland.”

Derek Murray, Regional Sales Manager for Spar Scotland, said: “We are delighted to welcome Suraj and his team to Spar. They have invested in a significant refit and the store and forecourt look fantastic. We are looking forward to supporting the business and its development well into the future.”

During the opening day shoppers received Spar goody bags, had the chance to enter a free prize draw, with prizes including a 24” smart tv and Spar vouchers, as well as receiving offers on a number of essential food and drink items.

The store also donated £200 to MFR Cash for Kids.
