marks and spencer BP

BP has opened a new £2m M&S Simply Food service station in Cairngorms National Park, creating 16 new jobs.

The filling station on Grampian Road, Aviemore, opened on Wednesday and has a Wild Bean Café, M&S store, baby changing room, on-site parking and a cash machine.

BP district manager Brian Shirley said: “It’ll be open 24/7, providing customers with four grades of fuel, as well as a selected range of Marks & Spencer’s high-quality fresh, innovative food alongside the best of BP fuels and our very own Wild Bean Café.”

The first customers at the forecourt will also receive a range of discounts and a free ‘bag for life’.

BP owns and operates 300 forecourts in the UK. The number of BP M&S Simply Food forecourts has grown to 230 since the first one was opened in 2005 in Hammersmith, London.
