A petrol station in Knaresborough is set to reopen its doors after a 10-week long renovation.
Co-op petrol station on Boroughbridge Road will open tomorrow with a new look and a much bigger emphasis on the food store.
The convenience retailer has almost doubled the size of the food store which now covers more than 2,600 square feet. The filling station also has new pumps and and a new canopy.
Due to the renovation there are vacancies for up to four staff. In total the new-look site will support 12 jobs.
Inside the store customers will find a bakery, hot food, a Costa coffee dispenser, more fresh, healthy products as well as food-to-go, wines, ready meals and everyday essentials.
A new addition to the site includes a recycle unit for “soft plastics” which currently covers Co-op’s own food packaging.
