The closest alternative petrol filling stations of any brand are Applegreen, Gloucester Road, Patchway (BS34 6NA) and Esso, Gloucester Road, Patchway (BS34 5BB).

Some customers posting on social media have complained that they were unaware of the upcoming temporary closure as they always use the ‘pay at pump’ facility and consequently never use the kiosk.

A post on the Willow Brook Centre’s Facebook page at 10am this morning (Sunday 19th) repeated verbatim the text on the kiosk closure notice.

As far as the Journal is aware, there has been no other publicity to raise awareness of the closure (such as a press release).


At the time of writing, the official Tesco webpage for the Bradley Stoke Extra Tesco Petrol Filling Station does not mention the closure and continues to show the usual 24-hour opening times.

Tesco PLC has been contacted for comment.


UPDATE added 21st May 2024.

We’ve now heard back from the Tesco PLC press office.

A Tesco spokesperson said:

“The petrol filling station at our Bradley Stoke Extra will be temporarily closed for refurbishment for the next few weeks. We apologise for the inconvenience and look forward to welcoming customers back after the works are completed.”
