New jobs for Desborough as bp M&S Simply Food store opens

12 December 2018
Twenty-one new jobs have been created with today’s opening of the new BP service station with M&S Simply Food on Bear Way

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.


Approximately £2.7million has been spent on the site which opens today. The store offers motorists the chance to fill up their shopping baskets at the same time as they fill up with BP’s high-quality fuel, a toilet accessible to disabled people, and a baby changing-room.


Andy Kenney, BP district manager said: “The new store and introduction of the M&S Simply Food range means we have been able to create twenty-one new 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 Bear Way will also receive a range of discounts and a free ‘bag for life’ to help their future shopping.
