The Co-operative Food is set to unveil the first three former David Sands stores to be transformed into Co-operative outlets, following an investment totalling around £750,000.
The new-look stores, at Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy, and Markinch, near Glenrothes, will all be unveiled on Thursday (28 June).
The Co-operative Group acquired the 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 The 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.”
A total of £750,000 has been invested in the St Andrew Street, Dunfermline; Ralston Drive, Kirkcaldy; and High Street, Markinch; stores to convert them to Co-operative Food outlets. Existing Post Offices in the Dunfermline and Kirkcaldy stores will remain.
