The Maxol shop and service station on the Glendermott Road has closed the ‘Journal’ can reveal.
The station was closed on Friday evening and will remain closed for an unspecified period.
It is hoped that the shop which was well known for its late and early morning opening hours may reopen in the future.
Yesterday a spokesperson from Maxol told the ‘Journal’:
“The station has not been meeting Maxol’s required performance levels for quite some time.
“Therefore, it was decided to close the station and conduct a comprehensive review of all available options.
“While the preference is to re-open at some stage in the future, a final decision will not be taken until this has been completed.
“Whilst the site is closed Maxol will conduct extensive refurbishment works to improve the quality of site facilities.
“In the meantime, we wish to apologise to any Maxol customers who have been inconvenienced and to advise that they may avail of the usual service and facilities at the nearby Eglinton Service Station, Coolafinny Road, Eglinton.”
