Opening of a new gas station and convenience store in Darlington


A new SPAR convenience store and gas station is about to open on one of Darlington’s busiest roads.

Development of the new SPAR and Shell branded forecourt at the Haughton Road gas station site in Darlington has continued for months after the initial building permit was granted in 2020.

The completely renovated site will open its doors to customers for the first time tomorrow (Thursday, November 18).

The store, next to the roundabout with Haughton Road and Barton Street, is owned and maintained by James Hall & Co. Ltd, the main wholesaler and distributor of SPAR UK for the north of England.
