Co-operative Group rolls out conversion of all David Sands stores

The next three stores to get a new look, at Darnhall Drive in Perth, Dollar Road in Burntisland and Main Street in Crossford, near Dunfermline, will all open as Co-operative-brand stores on 20 September. Three were refitted in June as part of a pilot, and the 22 remaining David Sands stores, across Fife, Kinross and Perthshire, will all be refitted during the coming weeks.

The Co-operative said it was investing almost  £7million in the stores giving them a new look and increasing the  range of meat and fresh produce on sale.

John McNeill, The Co-operative Food’s regional stores director in Scotland, said: "These stores operate at the heart of their local communities, something The Co-operative Food has a great track record in doing. We are looking forward to welcoming customers, and I’m sure they’ll enjoy shopping in the new-look stores."

The Co-operative Food is Scotland’s fourth biggest food retailer, and the leading convenience store operator, with more than 370 food stores, covering an area from Shetland in the north to Annan in the south.
