Fresh focus at fantastic new forecourt
A fantastic new forecourt which boasts a full Nisa convenience offer has officially opened in Hampshire.
The 35-year independently run Woolmer Service Station, owned by long time Nisa partners The Garner Group, underwent a complete transformation which saw the site in Bordon, Hampshire entirely demolished and re-built.
The petrol station and forecourt were originally built in 1984 but in September last year work began to knock down and re-build a brand-new modern forecourt, boasting an impressive 2,000 sq.ft. Nisa store.
The business re-launched at the end of March with the official grand re-opening taking place in the middle of April, ahead of the Easter weekend.
The impressive new development boasts a full convenience store offer, two Costa Express machines, COOK freezers, a Country Choice food-to-go station, fresh sandwiches, Amazon lockers and PayPoint facilities.
As a third-generation family business, being part of the local community is very important and highlights of the grand opening included welcoming players and coaches of the Wey Valley Youth FC, who the Garner Group sponsor.
Woolmer will also support The Bordon, Liphook & Haslemere Charity and Barnardo’s through a percentage of the sale of selected products to build up a fund over the year. Both charities were presented with a cheque for £250 on the day of the opening.
In addition to the spectacular F1 Ferrari car supplied by Shell, customers were treated to hot food tasters, a free raffle, goody bags and randomly selected customers had their fuel bills paid for them.
Andy Garner, who runs the business alongside father Tim, uncle Mike and cousin Dani, said: “Our family business has been operating since 1959 and has evolved greatly through the generations. We’re delighted to re-open Woolmer Service Station as ‘Garner’s Nisa’ 35 years after the original site was constructed.
“The regeneration of Whitehill and Bordon is a fantastic opportunity for our family business to proudly continue serving and supporting the local community”.
