Five Barred Gate, Samlesbury — site opens a little closer to home31 May 2013
Euro Garages formally opened the doors for business on May Bank Holiday at Five Barred Gate, Samlesbury. The site was acquired as part of a forty-five site package from ESSO in January 2013.
Located on the A59, this previously run-down site was re-developed within a tight twelve week timeframe. This once weathered site has totally been transformed into a trademark Euro Garages forecourt.
With established partnerships with major brands such as SPAR, the impressive site boasts a well-stocked convenience offering, a Subway to enjoy a freshly made sub and for the coffee loving commuters a chance to grab a hot Starbucks On the Go beverage.
With its links to major motorway networks, Five Barred Gate also offers excellent HGV facilities and for those with a little time to spare, it also has a comfortable seating area to sit down and much deserved break.
Five Barred Gate has been developed to meet the highest design and development considerations; LED lighting has been implemented internally and externally, open view ceiling and contemporary colours and the interior feel of the forecourt has a deeply refreshing, comfortable feel.
Heading this exciting economic regeneration project, Head of Construction, Nasir Yusuf said, “We are renowned throughout the country for our trademark innovative forecourt designs. We wanted to raise the bar with the Five Barred Gate development and given the short development time frame we have delivered and incorporated many additional extras which not only provide an excellent aesthetic feel but allow customers to experience access an exceptional facilities. As a growing business, It is important we continually develop our designs to maintain our recognised reputation as leading forecourt operators and to provide an enjoyable experience for our customers.
Newly appointed mayor of South Ribble, Cllr. Dorothy Gardner, who formally opened the site on Friday, 24th May explained,‘The Euro Garages development at Samlesbury — what an eye opener — there is something for everyone. The staff members were so pleasant and efficient and the fresh Subway sandwich lunch was fresh and tasty.’
Furthermore, the site opening brings excellent employment opportunities within the North West region, at a time when unemployment within local areas is considerable.
Speaking at the site opening, Zuber Issa, CEO, stated, “Five Barred Gate adds more value to our existing national estate, to-date 120 sites. We aim to invest in such run down forecourts and transform them into premium offers. Born and bred in Blackburn it is always satisfying to contributing to economic prosperity of the area and creating job opportunities for local people in Lancashire.”
