Scotmid opens store in Coaltown

Scotmid has opened its re-branded Botterills store in Coaltown of Balgonie, which previously operated under the Spar franchise.

This follows the acquisition of 51 Botterills stores at the end of last year.

Local customer Susan Beveridge, who shops at the store every day, was on hand to cut the ribbon and welcome the first customers to the store.

All the staff from the former Spar store have been retained in the re-branded store.

Gary Colohan, Store Manager, is happy to keep the same staff.

He said: “We have operated here for many years as part of the Spar franchise and have built up a good relationship with our customers.

“Becoming part of Scotmid is an exciting time for us and we look forward to serving our Coaltown customers with an excellent new product range and some great deals.”
