Euro Garages, the independent forecourt operator backed by former Asda CEO Andy Bond, has posted a 7% hike in full-year sales.

Turnover rose from £285.2m to £305.1m in the year to 31 July 2011, with pre-tax profits up 5.5% to £5.3m, according to accounts made available at Companies House this week.

Sales had been boosted by “major progress in acquiring sites, provision of extra services and capital investment in larger shopping areas,” the directors said.
