Brobot’s new look in Corby

Brobot and Londis development in Corby Southern Gateway
The new site in Corby’s Southern Gateway is the company’s largest ever development
The retail arm of Brobot Petroleum has built a striking new development on a greenfield site in Corby’s Southern Gateway.
The site, which opened in May, represents the company’s move from a forecourt business to convenience retailing.  It is two decades since Brobot built a site from scratch.
Brobot’s biggest development to date includes a large Londis convenience store with a Costa express machine, a Bake & Bite food-to-go, and seating. The company is also in talks to fill the currently empty unit next door with a branded food retailer.
Director Eddie Bright said: “Corby Southern Gateway is a big step forward in terms of concept. It’s a leap of faith into a different trading format – from a more traditional forecourt business to a full-on convenience business.”
Brobot has enjoyed a successful partnership with Londis since June 2009. Eddie added: “The industry was changing so much and we needed more expertise in shops because the shop is now the driving force behind the business.”
