Co-op hopes to open new Invergordon store late next year
A MAJOR new supermarket is expected to open its doors in Invergordon late next year.
The £650,000 investment by food retailer Co-op has gained planning approval for a new superstore on the town’s High Street, just yards away from the company’s small existing shop, which will close.
The development features a 35-space car park to the front of the store, an in-store bakery, a Costa Coffee machine, self-scan tills and a cash machine.
A Co-op spokesperson said the store would offer a broader range of the company’s usual range of fresh and pre-prepared produce, as well as hot food, wines, beers and spirits.
She said: “We are delighted to have received planning permission to take forward our plans for a new Co-op store in Invergordon.
“We want to provide the community with a modern Co-op that better suits their needs and provides a wider range of fresh, healthy foods, meal ideas and essentials with the added convenience of an on-site car park.
“This investment demonstrates our commitment to local area and we look forward to opening our doors towards the end of next year.”
