Christie & Co brings to the market five freehold petrol stations in Yorkshire

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market a group of five freehold petrol filling station sites located across South and West Yorkshire.

The group comprises two sites in Barnsley; Cross Keys Garage in Hoyland and Turnpike Garage in Staincross, two sites in Doncaster; Leyland Central Garage in Belton and Smalleys Garage in Thorne, and Prospect Garage in Normanton, West Yorkshire. Smalleys, Turnpike and Leyland are of modern construction having undergone a knockdown and re-build in 2018, 2017 and 2013 respectively, whilst the other sites have been well maintained to a high standard.

All of the petrol stations currently trade under the Jet brand and all include convenience store businesses on the site, with three Costcutter branded stores and two Mace. With combined sales of approximately 16,000,000 litres of fuel and £3,400,000 in gross retail sales per annum, the sites are strong performers under the current commission operators but provide further development potential for direct management. 

All of the sites are ideally located close to city centres or densely populated areas which see consistent passing trade and are in a prime position to cater to the local community.

Andrew Birnie, Director at Christie & Co who is handling the sale comments, “The sale of the portfolio represents a fantastic opportunity for a wide range of buyers to acquire either individual sites, or the full portfolio. The sites offer a range of prospects for the new buyers to develop trade, and all of the sites are ideally located to capitalise on the high levels of passing trade within a focused geography. We expect to see interest from across the market, including local and national operators, as well as first time buyers.”
