Circle K has opened its newest motorway services area, the Circle K M6 Athlone, located on the M6 motorway between Junctions 7 and 8 in Athlone, Co. Westmeath. More than 30 new jobs have been created in the area, and the site is expected to cater to up to 20,000 motorists daily.

The Circle K M6 Athlone marks a significant addition to the Circle K network of service stations. Strategically located on the M6 Dublin/Galway Road, it is expected that the new state-of-the-art site will cater for up to 20,000 motorists daily.An official opening celebration was held at the new forecourt, attended by Circle K senior management, local political dignitaries and a host of new customers, took place with a wide range of special offers available in store.

The opening is part of a wider investment into the development of four new sites. In the past year, Circle K has unveiled new sites on the N7 at Kill North, Co. Kildare, and on the M11 at Gorey, Co. Wexford, with a further new site set to be opened on the M9 at Kilcullen, Co. Kildare next month.

Gordon Lawlor, Managing Director of Circle K Ireland, said he is delighted to see the new store open its doors. “We look forward to catering to the needs of the thousands of motorists that use the M6 daily,” Lawlor said. “At Circle K, we always strive to make our customers’ lives a little easier, by delivering the very best customer service.

“The new site epitomises this,” he continued, “as it will deliver a range of essential and high-quality services 24/7 and is strategically located at Athlone, the halfway point between East and West.”
