Leading retailer Asda has submitted plans for a new petrol station at its Antrim store, near to Junction One Retail Park.
The application will seek permission to build a six-pump petrol filling station on land adjacent to the existing Asda store. If approved by Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council, the petrol station will bring greater choice and lower fuel prices to customers in the Antrim area.
Alan Jones, Asda’s Senior Communications Manager, explained:
“We’re excited to be able to apply to bring our famously low fuel prices to Antrim, and the surrounding area. Antrim is one of our flagship locations, and we look forward, subject to the approval of Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council, to being able to offer even more choice and convenience to our customers.
“Our application for a new petrol station is ideally timed as Junction One, the neighbouring retail park, will soon seek approval for a major redevelopment. Our plans perfectly complement this exciting ‘masterplan’ for the retail park.
“Asda is committed to doing everything we can to offer the lowest possible fuel prices at all of our filling stations across Northern Ireland. Our fuel prices are completely transparent, and are available daily online – customers will be able to see how low they are before they fill up.”
With excellent transport links to the store, Asda’s existing customers already benefit from Click and Collect and Home Delivery. The addition of a petrol filling station at the Antrim store will bring added convenience to customers.
