Costcutter aims to almost double the number of c-stores on Murco Petroleum forecourts and has renewed its partnership for three and a half years.

As of this week, there were 67 Costcutter-branded stores on Murco sites, ten of which were secured in December last year. Both companies hope to add 50 more stores in the next two years. The stores trade under the Costcutter supermarket and Costcutter Express fascias.

Separately, Costcutter is campaigning to recruit more franchisees in Northern Ireland.
