MURCO-FORECOURT

Murco has extended its supply deal with Costcutter

Murco has extended its supply agreement with Costcutter for another three years.

The forecourt operator has worked with Costcutter since 1996. As part of the new deal, Costcutter will supply Murco’s 230 company-owned forecourts.

“We are confident that with Costcutter we can continue to provide customers with an exceptional product range, top-name brands at great prices, ongoing value promotions and an attractive shopping environment,” said Murco’s general manager for non-fuel Gary Pearce.

Costcutter sales director Jamie Davison added: “We firmly believe that Murco and its franchisee managers will see significant benefits from our new buy and supply arrangements and, through our partnership with Palmer & Harvey, we are incredibly well placed to meet the needs of their large network.”

In March Costcutter announced it was forming a joint venture with Palmer & Harvey through which Costcutter would run P&H’s Mace fascia. The deal was cleared by the Office of Fair Trading in August.
