A Morrisons shop which recently took over Tuffins' store at Buttington will not be affected by the company’s deal with Motor Fuel Group.

MFG recently agreed to buy Morrisons' 337 forecourts in a £2.5 billion deal, in a deal set to affect the company's forecourts in Newtown and Brecon.

But Morrisons' move into Tuffins’ Welshpool shop, beside McDonald's on Cross Enterprise Park, will not be part of the deal, and as such will not be in new hands for the second time in six months.


Morrisons have confirmed that petrol stations sites it runs in partnership with Rontec are franchises and won't be impacted by this announcement.

While the deal will see MFG take on the Morrisons forecourts, including fuel and associated convenience retail operations, this does not affect the ownership of their service station outlets such as the one in Buttington, opened under the name of the supermarket's convenience store brand Morrisons Daily, in partnership with Rontec.

Speaking at the time of the outlet’s opening in 2023, A spokesperson for Morrisons said: "The new Morrisons Daily will open in partnership with Rontec and will offer customers a carefully tailored mix of Morrisons own brand products alongside branded favourites.

“As well as new ranges, the store has received a complete redesign internally and externally incorporating Morrisons bright, modern branding. Fresh food is at the heart of the store and we hope customers will love it."
