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

Date: 12 July 2017

New jobs have been added in Wadebridge with today’s opening of the new BP service station with M&S Simply Food on West Hill, St Breock. 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.

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, air and water, a toilet accessible to disabled people as well as a baby changing-room.

Mark Witham, BP district manager said: “The introduction of the M&S Simply Food range means we now have a total of 20 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 on West Hill will also receive a range of discounts and a free ‘bag for life’ to help their future shopping.
