One of Ireland’s leading forecourt retailer, Applegreen, will celebrate its birthday today 24th July (24-7) by spreading some fun and cheer during these challenging times. The company will reduce the price of fuel to just 24.7 cent per litre for one day only, as part of its special ‘24/7’ birthday celebrations this Friday 24 July.
The sale will involve 24 Applegreen outlets around Ireland, each of which will offer fuel at €0.247 per litre for one hour between 8am and 4pm on Friday 24 July. Details of what time each 1-hour sale will take place at 24 participating locations will be revealed on Applegreen’s social media channels throughout the day.
The company says that the 24.7 cent offer is likely to be one of Ireland’s biggest ever fuel sales, with Applegreen customers potentially able to fill their tank for €10-15 (depending on car size) by availing of the one-off discount. The last time fuel was on sale at a comparable price in Ireland was in the early 1960s.
“We certainly hope it will be Ireland’s biggest ever fuel sale and we’re going to try and ensure that as many of our customers as possible can fill their tank for 24.7 cent per litre on Friday,” said Joe Barrett, Chief Operating Officer of Applegreen.
“We’ll be announcing exact details of where and when the sales are happening on Friday on our social platforms, so customers must be ready to jump on it,” Mr Barrett went on. “Participating locations are spread right around Ireland and each outlet will have one hour to sell as much fuel as possible so we’re expecting a few traffic jams and a lot of very happy customers!
“This is our way of sharing our ‘24/7’ birthday with customers and reaffirming our commitment to value and community,” Mr Barrett added.
In addition to fuel at 24.7 cent per litre, Applegreen has also announced a wide range of special offers that will be available at all outlets nationwide, all day Friday, with many products discounted to €0.24, €2.47 and €24.70 as part of the company’s ‘24/7’ birthday festivities.
Special ‘24/7’ offer include:
• ‘99’ ice creams, slushees, croissants, chocolate bars for 24 cent (€0.24)
• Chicken fillet rolls, breakfast rolls, car wash, keep cup, mineral multi-packs for €2.47
• Chocolate & snack share bags, Red Bull; 2 for €2.47
Fuel offer will ensure party atmosphere at Applegreen outlets
Applegreen’s one-off fuel sale will give a much-needed boost to motorists as traffic volumes begin to recover to normal levels, says the company.
“As a community, we are on the road to recovery and there are a lot more cars out and about, especially on weekends,” said Joe Barrett, Applegreen COO. “Filling the tank for 24.7 cent per litre this Friday could be the perfect start to the weekend, especially for families that are ‘staycationing’ in Ireland.
“Between the fuel offer and our huge range of in-store discounts, we’re pulling out all the stops to make it a birthday to remember,” said Mr Barrett. “We’d like as many of our customers as possible to avail of our birthday treats so please drop in and join the fun!”
