Forecourt Site

Jos. Richardson & Son Ltd acquire 7th forecourt site.

Family business Jos Richardson & Son Ltd have purchased Snaith Hall Filling Station, a Gulf fuel station and convenience store based in the town of Snaith near Goole, East Yorkshire.

The purchase of the property and the goodwill of the business adds a 7th site to their existing forecourt portfolio, which includes: Glews Service Station at Goole; Longs Corner Garage at Howden; York Road Garage at Escrick; Middleton Service Station at Pickering; as well as Filey and Primrose Valley Service Stations on the East Coast.

Commenting on the acquisition Managing Director Joseph Richardson said “we are delighted that this purchase has been finalised.  Snaith Hall Filing Station is a small site with a great location in the centre of the town in Snaith and it has a lot of potential.  In the short term we will bring in the SPAR symbol group and put in a Costa coffee machine.  We will then take some time to evaluate what other improvements can be made.

Snaith Hall Filing Station has been in the Shackle family for many years and has been well run by husband and wife team Paul and Linda who are now selling up to retire. The acquisition fits in with the long-term strategy of Jos Richardson & Son Ltd who have been acquiring new sites and modernising them to ensure their long-term future and to improve efficiencies.”

Joseph continued “the site has a very good reputation locally and we want to continue offering the people of Snaith and surrounding areas the highest standards of customer service and value. We look forward to working with the existing team to build on the great work that Paul and Linda have done over the years and we wish them every happiness as they take retirement”
