Auckland, 1 April 2014 – Papatoetoe has welcomed Caltex to its neighbourhood, with the new facility opening its doors at 49 Station Road.

The station’s owner Amin Tharani, who has operated the site for 11 years, says, “It’s fantastic to be working in the new Caltex station and we’re looking forward to offering our customers better value at the pump than ever before.”

“The Papatoetoe community needs a service station that provides great fuel at a great price, so we are proud that’s what this new Caltex station promises.”

Dean Gilbert, Chevron NZ General Manager, says, “We’re delighted Amin is adding this site to the Caltex network. He has built great relationships with locals and regulars over the years, and we know Amin will make us proud of the new site.”

The Caltex Station Road team is looking forward to welcoming locals with a grand opening onSaturday 5 April. Customers will receive a 10 cents per litre AA Smartfuel discount throughout the day when they spend $40 or more on petrol or diesel when swiping their AA Smartfuel card or AA card. There will also be giveaways and prizes up for grabs, and The Rock Roadies will be on site to celebrate.

“We would love to see our friends in the community drop in and make the most of everything we have to offer,” says Amin.
