"In New South Wales they are always priced the lowest ... and we are planning to do the same thing and keep the prices as low as possible," Mr Bhanudas said.

He said the previous owners of the service station closed it because the town was quiet.

He hoped his competitive prices would attract people.

It was hoped the service station would begin trading early next week.

Mr Bhanudas said Metro was one of the biggest family retailers.
