The Comet revealed yesterday that work has begun to turn the Grade II-listed former John Lewis distribution centre off Cavendish Road into a 14,030-square-metre megastore with parking for 611 cars.

And now Costco’s James Cheesemore has told this paper that the store will also include an on-site petrol station.

“The petrol station is not a full service station and does not include any shop or other forecourt services,” he said.

“Payment is made by either debit card or American Express credit card at the pump.

“Costco has opened 13 petrol stations within the UK in recent years. These facilities provide further benefits to Costco members by offering high quality fuel at great prices.”

The store is expected to open in July 2019.
