BEARSDEN’S Scotmid store has been reopened - after undergoing a six figure refit.

The former Morning, Noon and Night shop on Ledi Drive has had £100,000 spent on it to bring it bang up to date.

East Dunbartonshire Provost Eric Gotts was on hand to cut the ribbon and welcome the first customers to the store.

He said: “This is the second time I’ve had the opportunity to open officially a Scotmid store in East Dunbartonshire. Scotmid has a national reputation for operating successful convenience stores across Scotland and I am sure that the store in Ledi Drive will be no exception.

“This is great news for the local community. I wish the store all the best for its future operations.”

Julie Blue, store manager, said: “Scotmid prides itself on being a vital part of the local community and we look forward to serving our Bearsden customers from our remodelled store with an excellent product range and some great deals.”

The refurbished store now incorporates more space for fresh and chilled foods, a new chilled section for beers and wines, an improved range of groceries and a new layout. The store also offers a selection of hot food to take away.

Scotmid will continue to operate its ‘Think 25’ policy in the Bearsden store. This means that anyone who does not clearly look over 25 years old will be asked for identification when buying age restricted products such as alcohol and tobacco.
