Locals Set To Save At New Caltex Station Road

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

Previously a Challenge service station, after two and a half weeks of refurbishment the re-branded site now offers locals AA Smartfuel discounts, which can provide great long term savings for customers using their AA Smartfuel card or AA card.

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.

The new station provides a full range of services including assisted forecourt service, a convenience store, trailer hire and LPG Bottle Swap. Customers can now also fuel up with Caltex with Techron, reaping its well-known cleaning benefits.
