North UK forecourt retailer Sewell on the go has bought six petrol stations from Rix Petroleum in a £10m deal.
The sites, which were previously rented by Sewell on the go, take the total group to 13 forecourts and convenience stores in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Patrick Sewell, managing director of Sewell on the go, said: “There is a lot of uncertainty around Brexit at the moment and we have chosen to invest, providing more certainty, security and confidence for our customers and staff going forward.
“We are looking to continue to grow within the Yorkshire region and we are certainly keeping our options open regarding additional sites and other potential opportunities. We are incredibly proud to have 13 stores in a very close knit trading area. This acquisition is a positive move, investing for the future.”
Sewell on the go has also renewed contracts with suppliers Londis and fuel supplier BP.
