The family tradition, which spans 70 years, continues as his sons Michael and Steven carry on the business, which also comprises a Mace store in Coleraine, licensed premises, a car hire business and Ivan Wilson Fuels Supplies.

The site includes popular Irish fast food chain Chipmongers, who have opened their shop in Co Derry as well a pay-at-the-pump forecourt run independently by Nicholl Fuels.

Store owner, Michael Wilson said the new opening is another important milestone for the business.
