bp Connect Blue Moon re-opens with wider retail offering

Release date:
2 July 2020
Palmerston North's bp Connect Blue Moon re-opened its doors 6am yesterday morning offering customers a range of bp fuel choices, in-store ice cream parlour, Wild Bean Cafe and Good Mood Food.

Customers will have three choices of fuel – bp Unleaded 91, bp Ultimate 98 and bp Ultimate Diesel.


The refreshed retail site sees the return of its well-loved ice cream parlour – scooping Tip Top Kiwi favourites such as Hokey Pokey and Goody Goody Gum Drops, and award-winning Boysenberry. Blue Moon is the only site in the bp Connect network that serves hand scooped ice creams and milkshakes.


As well as a retail convenience shop and Wild Bean Cafe, bp is making its Good Mood Food offer of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, take-home ice cream pints and Wishbone ready meals available for Palmerston North locals.


bp New Zealand General Manager of Retail and Assets Adrian McClellan says, “We are excited to re-open bp Connect Blue Moon with a wider retail offering to deliver a high quality and differentiated convenience offer that our customers know and love”.


bp New Zealand is committed to delivering more sustainable operations and are continually looking at new ways to improve energy efficiency at store-level. This includes using energy LED lighting in the shop and forecourt, utilising recycled heat from refrigeration systems for water heating and collecting re-useable rainwater from the rooftop. 


Wild Bean Cafe is the number one selling Fairtrade, barista-made coffee in New Zealand. 


There are 107 bp Connect sites nationwide and a further 104 bp dealer sites located around New Zealand.
