The opening has created 18 local jobs.

Honiton’s new Marks and Spencer outlet has officially opened today - and has created 18 local jobs.

The Simply Food store is part of BP’s newly opened service station on Turks Head Lane.

The joint BP and Marks & Spencer development will offer motorists a wide range of M&S food alongside BP’s own Wild Bean Café drinks and hot food.

Approximately £2.1 million has been spent on the site which opens today.

The store offers motorists the chance to fill up their shopping baskets at the same time as they fill up with fuel, a toilet accessible to disabled people, and a baby changing-room.

Mark Witham, BP district manager said: “The new store and introduction of the M&S Simply Food range means we have been able to create 18 new jobs for people in the local area.

“It’ll be open 24/7 providing customers with a selected range of Marks & Spencer’s high quality fresh, innovative food alongside the best of BP fuels and our very own Wild Bean Café.”

BP’s Wild Bean Cafe offers quality hot and fresh food and drinks.

The first customers at BP on Turks Head Lane received a range of discounts and a free ‘bag for life’ to help their future shopping.
