Scotmid Co-operative has reopened its Hunterfield Road store, in Gorebridge, after the community convenience store underwent a total transformation.

The focus was on increasing fresh food, introducing a food-to-go area and installing a Costa Express coffee machine and “other progressive changes”.

The store rewarded the first 50 customers to walk through the door on opening day earlier in the month with shopping bags filled with daily essential groceries, and envelopes containing golden tickets that entitled them to gifts, such as a television and an iPad Mini.
