New Co-op food store in Bearsden will create ten jobs

A new Co-operative food store will create 10 new jobs when it opens in the Mosshead area of Bearsden later this year.

The store will be in Stockiemuir Avenue, near Bearsden Academy, and complements the Co-op’s existing store in Station Road, Bearsden which opened in 2011.

The new Co-op outlet, which will focus on fresh, healthy foods and essentials, is scheduled to open in the spring. The opening hours will be 7am to 10pm seven days a week.

The Co-op’s area manager Michael Mcguiness said: “We will be looking for about 10 new people to join our store team.

“We are thrilled to be making such a significant investment in Bearsden and delighted that we will have a fantastic new food store with which to serve the community.”

The Co-operative gives profits to members through the membership dividend scheme. Members can choose to keep the cash from their dividend payment or donate to local good causes.
