New jobs for Heaton Mersey as BP M&S Simply Food store opens

Published Wednesday 14th October 2015

More than twenty new jobs have been created on Didsbury Road with the opening of a brand new BP service station with M&S Simply Food at the Heaton Mersey site.

The joint BP and Marks & Spencer development will offer motorists a wide range of M&S quality food alongside BP’s own Wild Bean Café drinks and hot food.

To mark the opening, the Mayor and Mayoress of Stockport, Councillor Andrew Verdeille and Mrs Cleo Cundall, will be cutting the ribbon at 11.00 a.m. on 14th October.

Over £1 million has been spent on a complete rebuild and rebranding of the site which opens today with over 20 staff after a complete rebuild. The store now offers motorists the chance to fill up their shopping baskets at the same time as they fill up with BP’s high quality fuel, car parking, a toilet accessible to disabled people as well as a baby changing-room.

Chris Woodburn, BP area manager said: “The new store and introduction of the M&S Simply Food range means we have been able to create 20-plus jobs for people in the local area. It’ll be open 24/7 providing customers with a selected range of Marks & Spencer’s high quality fresh, innovative food alongside the best of BP fuels and our very own Wild Bean Café.”

BP’s Wild Bean Cafe offers quality hot and fresh food and drinks. The first customers at BP Heaton Mersey will also receive a range of discounts and a free ‘bag for life’ to help their future shopping.
