Two new retailers have moved into the site of the former Texaco fuel station at Trostre, Llanelli, building on the area’s appeal as an established retail destination.

Greggs and Deluxe Vapours have joined Sally Hair and Beauty, Trostre Car Sales, Topps Tiles and Papa John’s Pizza in the newly-built units which boast good customer parking provision as well as excellent accessibility for drivers and pedestrians.

Greggs, the UK’s leading bakery food-on-the-go retailer, has taken a 1,250 sq ft unit on 10-year lease with Deluxe Vapours, South Wales-based e-cigarette specialists, committing to a 1,095 sq ft unit on a three-year lease.

“The site is owned by a local landlord who, encouraged by the success of neighbouring Parc Trostre and Parc Pemberton, took the strategic decision to close the Texaco petrol station in 2018 and develop it into a retail and food court style park,” explains Jason Thorne, LSH Wales’ Director.

Huw Thomas, Director at Cooke & Arkwright who acquired the new site for Greggs adds: Greggs are delighted to have secured this new, extremely prominent unit at Trostre which is an excellent example of the type of visible retail park and roadside location we continue to search for on their behalf across the region.”

Jason added that three further units are planned on the site, aimed at attracting more companies looking to take advantage of this prime location.
