A petrol station with a 'high turnover' has been sold to new owners.

Seven Sisters Service Station in Thornliebank was sold off-market at an undisclosed price.

The BP garage had been heavily invested in and well-maintained by the previous owner, John Sommerville, who felt the time was right for the property to come to the market.

He partnered with business property agency Christie & Co who helped secure the sale to the new owners, who wish to remain private. 

They are recognised as established forecourt operators from England who wished to expand their business into Scotland

John said:" “It was an easy choice to partner with Christie & Co when we decided to sell. Their dedication and professionalism was evident throughout the process and made what was a complex deal as smooth as possible.

"Both sites offer fantastic scope for further development with the plans we have put in place to take them both forward and further increase sales and profit and we wish the new owners all the best.”

Associate director Mark Lavery, who brokered the deal, added: “It was a pleasure to act for John on this multi-site transaction, which reflects the growing market in Scotland for good quality, high turnover forecourt sites.

"Demand is outstripping supply for modern, large footprint sites with further development potential, so we highly recommend getting in touch if you’re considering selling.”
