Co-op has relaunched its MacAulay Road store, on Isle of Lewis, after a multi-million pound makeover.
The near 22,000sq ft store, the largest in the Co-op Group’s estate, has a new-look for chilled produce, fruit, vegetables and dairy.
The café has also been transformed and modernised. Two new Costa coffee dispensers and a fresh orange juice machine have been installed. In addition, Stag bakeries – based in Stornoway – has opened an over-counter range of hot food, pies and pastries.
At the back of store, new larger and more efficient cold rooms and storage will further improve operational capacity, availability and resilience.
The store features new refrigeration that includes a heat recovery system to warm the store by recycling the heat generated by the system.
Steven Cooper, Co-op’s Stornoway Store Manager, said: “We have had a great response, we are delighted to have had the opportunity to carry out such a significant investment to transform the store.”
The store is also home to independent Travel Agent Hebrides Travel, a travel exchange bureau and, The Original Factory Shop (TOFS) which offers discounts on big-name brands.
A new laundry service is also available with a Revolution Laundromat located outside the store for washing and drying all types of laundry.
Last month, Co-op also relaunched its Sollas, North Uist, store following a programme of works and improvements.
