Thorntons are chocolatiers and on the motorway they appeared to be phased out quickly, in favour of WHSmith.

It's slightly perplexing how they lasted so long. They were introduced to services in 1999 as part of Granada's plan to create mini shopping areas. Within a few years, most of those shops had been removed, including Thorntons.

Despite this - and unlike other brands introduced at the same time - Thorntons continued to operate at motorway services until a few weeks after the new Cherwell Valley opened, where it was removed.
