Forecourt fills up

A NEW petrol station linked to the Sainsbury’s supermarket at the former Christie Park site in Morecambe was due to open yesterday, Thursday.

The forecourt at the former Esso site off Lancaster Road, will employ 14 people, including former Sainsbury’s Lancaster manager Sue Eckford who is heading up the team.

The station will offer eight pumps and three air and water stations.

There will also be a shop selling confectionery, basic groceries, alcohol, newspaper and magazines and car care products.

During the first two weeks, shoppers who spend £50 in the nearby supermarket, which opened in November, will receive 5p off a litre of petrol bought at the forecourt.
