Property Snapshot

Acting on behalf of Sainsbury's Supermarkets Ltd, Colliers International has acquired a lease on the former Dunns Motors filling station on Mansfield Road, Taunton.

Sainsbury’s has re-opened the site following a six figure refurbishment including new pumps, a shop refit and new signage.

Anthony Keohane, Director at Colliers International commented: “The Mansfield Road site is located opposite Sainsbury’s existing town centre store and  gives Sainsbury’s the ideal opportunity to extend their filling station operations.”

Caroline Vickerstaff, Sainsbury’s regional development surveyor, said: “Customers value the convenience of being able to fill up as part of their weekly shopping trip.

“This was a great opportunity for us to offer this at our Taunton store and we look forward to continuing to providing competitively priced fuel for customers.”

Sainsbury’s has taken the site on a long term lease.
