Germany has an extremely high shop penetration, with 94.8% of all service stations featuring a shop. Aral has the highest number of sites with a shop, with all of its sites featuring a forecourt shop. Germany also has a high proportion of sites with a car wash due to government regulations that prevent consumers from washing their cars at home.
