The Co-operative converts first three David Sands stores
Co-operative Food is set to reveal the first three former David Sands stores that have been transformed into Co-operative Food outlets.
The new-look stores, at Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, and Markinch will all be unveiled on 28 June, following an investment totalling around £750,000.
The Co-operative Group acquired the Scotland-based David Sands chain earlier this year. All the stores will be converted to Co-operative outlets, with the remaining 25, in Fife, Kinross and Perthshire, to follow.
Sean Toal, chief operating officer and acting chief executive of Co-operative Food, said: "The David Sands stores are great additions to The Co-operative Food. They complement our existing estate, and reinforce our position as the fourth biggest food retailer in Scotland.
"We will build upon David Sands’ strong tradition of serving their local communities, and we’re looking forward to welcoming customers into these new-look stores."
Co-operative Food currently operates 370 food stores in Scotland, serviced from a composite distribution centre which opened in Newhouse, near Glasgow, in 2011. It is the fourth largest food retailer in Scotland with an annual turnover of over £1 billion.
