York company prepares to launch the best space station on planet Earth


York based service station and self storage operator, Inner Space Stations, is blasting into 2019 with the redevelopment of their service station on Hull Road, best known as “the one with the Daleks on the roof!” The three month project, starting January 2019, is set to bring York the best service station on planet Earth.

Inner Space Stations service station was established over 30 years ago and is recognisable by its distinctive and unique sci-fi branding. The station provides quality fuel and convenience products, as well as popular Jet Wash and Car Wash facilities. The company also owns and operates Self Storage in the City Centre, as well as three external storage locations in Dunnington, Hull Road and Hessay.

The brand new space station will launch in April 2019 and boast an even larger shop, a greater range of fresh fruit and veg, and even more wines, beers and spirits for customers to choose from. The 24/7 space station will also introduce Stone Willy’s Kitchen, who offer a delicious selection of gourmet pizza and freshly made wraps, 24 hours a day! For those who don’t need fuel, there will be additional parking spaces outside so customers can still pop by to choose their meal and treat themselves to a bottle of wine (or gin!).

Graham Kennedy, owner of Inner Space Stations, said: “We are really excited to begin the next chapter of Hull Road service station. Our mantra is to be ‘simply the best’ so we have set out to create a space station that is out of this world. We currently provide over 9,000 customers with quality fuel and food each week and our aim is to become a one-stop-shop where our customers know they come to get everything they need.”

Inner Space Stations is renowned for their unique branding and fascination with space and sci-fi. Operations manager, Sam Cook, commented: “Our Stormtroopers, Daleks and Transformers are fantastic, they are the heart of Inner Space Stations and attract new customers to our site every day. We want to bring the wow factor to the service station industry and continue to make our customers smile when they visit us each week.”

The new space station on Hull Road is due to launch in April 2019. In the meantime, Inner Space Stations will be operating from a temporary Portakabin, meaning customers will still be able to buy their fuel and an select range of products between the hours of 6am – 10pm, 7 days a week.

The company’s vision is to create a service station ‘out of this world’ with a truly unique identity.
