There is no doubt that the pandemic changed shopping habits right across the island of Ireland, making the local service station a popular destination for shoppers wishing to avoid crowded supermarkets. During that time, many proactive fuel retailers benefitted from the new consumer trend by extending their facilities to include a variety of services such as cafés, postal amenities, leisure and shopping, along with regular and premium fuel grades, restoring their business profits. This brave move has paid dividends for retailers, as customers continue to patronise local convenience stores, despite life having returned to near normal.
