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

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

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,” he added.

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

With 3,000sqft of selling space, the 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. Fresh produce, Lottery and Paypoint services and free Wi-Fi further enhance the offering in-store.

CJ Lang & Son Limited distributes to over 350 SPAR stores across Scotland.
