Marks and Spencer will open a food store in Clevedon Next month!
The High Street favourite is to take over the shop area at Clevedon Service Station at Tickenham Road. The site, which is owned by Clevedon Garages, currently has a Budgens supermarket and a Subway.
This is due to close at the end of October to make way for a new Marks and Spencer Food store.
It is understood the new store will also feature a Wild Bean Café.
The news follows a deal which has seen fuel giant BP lease the filling station site from Clevedon Garages and take over the fuel sales operation.
It is understood that no jobs will be lost as part of the changes.
The petrol station and store, when complete, will continue to trade on a 24 hour basis.
A spokesperson for BP said: "We can confirm that effective of October 31 the retail site at Clevedon will become part of our retail network. Following a refit of the site, we expect that a new BP M&S store will open on November 30."
The deal is part of wider plans for a modernisation of the entire garage and showroom site.
Clevedon Garages managing director Steve Day said: "We were approached by BP who recognised that Clevedon is a town which it wanted to be associated with.This is good news for Clevedon and a step forward for the town."
Clevedon currently has a large Tesco and Asda supermarket.There also used to be a Morrisons store at Queens Square in the town centre but this closed last year and has since been replaced by a B&M store. The nearest M&S stores are at Cribbs Causeway and Weston-super-Mare.
The news has been welcomed by business leaders in the town.
Clevedon Chamber of Commerce president Paul Anslow said: "Marks and Spencer is a strong brand and in line with the sort of quality brand we want to attract to Clevedon. "Not only will it be a great addition for local people, but put across the right message to people visiting the town or passing through."
