Co-op has launched a new convenience store in Auchtermuchty, Fife.
The retailer has relocated to a near 3,000sq ft store, which is around 1,200sq ft larger than its previous store in the town.
Auchtermuchty’s new Co-op will run on 100% renewable electricity and opens between 6am-10pm daily. It offers post office services throughout the store’s opening hours, a free ATM, and a click-and-collect service through Co-op’s online shop will be introduced “soon”.
The store also offers Co-op’s own-brand Fairtrade coffee dispenser – Ever Ground – and bakery. There will also be pastries, rolls and cakes from Stephens Bakery of Fife.
A unit is also available to enable the community to recycle ‘soft plastics’ – including crisp packets, bread bags, lids from ready meals and yogurt pots, biscuit wrappers and, pet food pouches. And, compostable carrier bags are also available for shoppers who forget their reusable bag.
Ryan Scullion, Co-op’s Area Manager, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to create a new, improved and larger store to serve the community. Our aim is to operate at the heart of local life, and we are looking forward to welcoming the community into their new Co-op store.
“We have worked to develop the range, choice, products and added services to create a really compelling offer to serve Auchtermuchty, conveniently.”
