A NEW forecourt food store has been launched at a petrol station in Bakewell.
Co-operative opened its latest store on Friday morning at the Haddon Road fuelling station, where it will sell basic groceries, as well as offering services such as Paypoint.
Previous owners Brian and Susan Ramsay handed over the business on Friday.
Brian said: “Naturally we have mixed emotions about the sale of the business but due to health reasons I really need to take things easier. The business is a true community retailer and I’m confident that it will continue to serve the local community well.
“We would like to take the opportunity not only to thank our staff for their loyalty especially Lisa, but to thank all our many customers who have supported us over the past 18 years.”
