Newport-on-Tay shoppers take a fresh look at new Scotmid store

Scotmid Co-operative re-launched its Newport-on-Tay store today (29 March 2013), after a major refit to modernise the store and introduce new customer services.

Stuart Webster from TayFM was on hand to cut the ribbon and welcome the first customers to their new look store. Newport-on-Tay Scotmid is the first store in Fife to be upgraded as part of Scotmid’s ongoing modernisation programme.

Store Manager, Michael Thomson said: “The new look Newport-on-Tay Scotmid is fantastic. We’ve been listening to our customers’ feedback to make sure we have the things in store that they want. From our new in-store bakery to a wider range of fresh produce being available, the store has been given much more than a lick of paint. We’re looking forward to welcoming shoppers old and new to the new store.”

Customers can now enjoy a new in-store bakery from local baker Goodfellow & Steven, specialty breads, fresh ground coffee and a freshly squeezed orange juice maker. The store has also been improved by increasing the range of fresh fruit and vegetables, adding a bigger and better chilled section, and extending the range of wine and craft beers available. A Costa Express installation is coming soon.

Healthy recipe cards and wine tasting notes for customers are new additions in store, while the store’s fascia and in-store appearance has been modernised to a striking black and green to improve the shopping environment for customers.
