EG Group opens new forecourt store in the Heartlands

Spar store at the Heartlands Business Park, Whitburn, Scotland

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

“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,” Mike Leonard, sales director at Spar Scotland, said.

“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 3,000 sqft of selling space, the 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.

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