Impressive family forecourt transformation

A substantial project which will see a 35-year independently run forecourt undergo a complete transformation is set to be completed in a matter of weeks.

The site in Bordon, Hampshire belongs to long time Nisa partners The Garner Group and is one of three forecourts operated by the third-generation family business.

The petrol station and forecourt were originally built in 1984 but in September last year work began to demolish it and re-build a brand-new modern forecourt, boasting an impressive 2,000 sq.ft. Nisa store.

Key features in the new retail space will include a full convenience store offer, two Costa Express machines, COOK freezers, a Country Choice food-to-go station, fresh sandwiches, an Amazon locker, CollectPlus and PayPoint integrated functions. 

Andy Garner, who runs the business alongside uncle Mike, father Tim 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 increasing population.”

With an aim to open in early March it is still a work in progress, but the development is running to schedule and the family is confident the new forecourt will be open and trading within weeks.
