Yorkshire petrol station extends car park following customer feedback

Central England Co-op has expanded the car park at one of its Petrol Stations in Huddersfield in response to customer feedback.

The site, in Lane Head Road, Shepley, has undergone a £67,000 makeover which included the creation of 14 extra parking spaces following the removal of a car wash.

The decision to extend the car park came in response to customers and members asking for a bigger area to park when they stop for fuel or to do their shopping.

The transformation has also allowed for a range of other improvements including improved food to go and an upgrade in the type of products on offer to give customers and members more choice.

Store Manager Mark Freeman said: “Our team has been so excited. The revamp looks fantastic and already customers have been making many positive comments about how it looks.

“Customers regularly told us that the site needed more parking spaces, so we listened and ensured that this was our number one priority as part of the major refurbishment work.

“I would like to thank our members and customers for their patience during the refurbishment and I hope they enjoy the changes as much as we do.

“All of us here at the Lane Head Road Petrol Station and Food Store are proud to be part of such a great community in Shepley and are looking forward to welcoming customers, new and old, to come and enjoy our revamped site.”

The Lane Head Road Petrol Station and Food Store is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

The store has a wide range of products from everyday necessities to something a little more special. The store also offers a cash machine, Collect Plus/Paypoint, and Lottery.
