Co-operative Food to open five new stores in Scotland

Published 18 December 2013

UK-based The Co-operative Food will open five new stores in Scotland this week, in line with its long-term acquisitions strategy.

Four stores will be opened at Carnoustie in Angus and Monifieth near Dundee, and at Wester Inshes and Monarchs View, both in Inverness, reported Herald Scotland. The fifth store would be the previous Co-op's store in Troon, Ayrshire, which was destroyed by a fire in January 2013.

These five stores, in total, will span over more than 15,000ft2 of retail space, and will create around 80 new full and part-time jobs.

The Co-operative Food's regional acquisitions manager Ian Mason said, "We're constantly looking to develop the quality of our portfolio of stores and how we can work with communities to ensure high quality, ethical and unique shopping experiences."

According to Herald Scotland, The Co-operative Food has around 400 stores across Scotland. It is aiming to have 150 stores across the UK by the end of 2014.
