Filling station runs dry again

Have your say

What is going wrong with our new service station?

This is the second time to my knowledge that it has been out of fuel for a prolonged period.

When visiting on other previous occasions, many pumps have been out of action (usually the dearer-priced fuel that would I expect would give them greater profit).

On one visit, so many pumps were out of action that they were covered with Spar plastic carrierbags.

What a mess!

Since the opening of the site, the gents’ toilet has been ripped apart, with customers using the staff facilities.

To crown it all, when I suggested to one of the cashiers that all the problems being encountered with the new site must be quite embarrassing, I was told by the cashier: “I could always use the other petrol station in town if I didn’t like it.”

Petrol or no petrol, I think it is proven that the competition has done nothing to produce competitive petrol prices.

We needed one of the two main supermarkets in town for that, but I guess a town the size of Alnwick would not produce the required volume of sales.
