Spar wholesaler James Hall & Co has signed a deal to supply Euro Garages, which runs 70 forecourts across the north west of England and the Midlands.

The independent petrol station operator has converted 20 stores to the Spar fascia and plans to convert all by the end of the year.

"A strong, ambitious partner such as Euro Garages will help us develop even further in the forecourt retailing sector ," said Peter Dodding, retail director of James Hall & Co.

Euro Garages, which aims to double its site portfolio through acquisitions, sees the Spar rollout as a key part of plans to boost revenue across its estate and create a strong community retail offering.

"The Spar brand offers us additional buying power and sales improvement as well as stock and category management," said Zuber Issa, managing director of Euro Garages.
