Essar Oil UK has confirmed the the first opening of a Morrisons Daily at one of its branded retail outlets at Moulsford in Oxfordshire, with several more planned to follow suit in 2019.
Based at Stanlow on the banks of the Mersey, Essar supplies more than 16% of the UK’s road fuel and employs almost 1,000 people. In 2015 it entered the petrol retail market and now operates from 67 sites across the country.
The station is one of 12 MPK sites recently unveiled under the Essar marque, following an agreement reached in November with the top independent garage group.
Ramsay Macdonald, head of retail at Essar, said: “This is another milestone in the development of Essar’s UK retail network. With a vibrant modern and fresh brand, we believe we are ideally placed to showcase best in class ‘Roadside Retail’ and Morrisons Daily is certainly in that category.
“MPK is transforming its business and this is a huge vote of confidence that Essar can assist their development as a major convenience led business. The fantastic range of fresh and chilled foods to go means our customers can do a daily shop, or pick something up on their journey, while filling up at a competitive price.”
