Major revamp in Coylton

Spar Coulton retailer Mike Leonard

SOUTH Ayrshire independent retailer Chris McCallum has given his Spar store a major overhaul, revamping his offer through a four-week refit.

McCallum has installed new refrigeration at his Spar Coulton store, to support a substantial range of soft drinks, chilled foods and produce, as well as an increased range of chilled beers, ciders and wines.

The refit also included new food to go provisions, with McCallum introducing Costa Coffee, Tango Ice Blast, F’real frozen milkshakes, Browning’s bakery products and Rollover hot dogs.
McCallum said: “We aim to keep the store up to date with the ever-changing shopping habits of our customer base.

“Feedback so far on the store is that it appears brighter and so much bigger, and the enhancement of the range has been really well received.

“The new fridges have also allowed us to increase our fresh range, providing both a quick on-the-go snack and a complete solution for an evening meal.”

Mike Leonard, sales director for Spar Scotland, said: “The significant investment in this Spar Scotland store once again reflects the passion and dedication of our independent retailers.

“Spar Coylton has been a key part of the community for 17 years and the investment in the store re-fit ensures that it reflects the needs of our customers.

“The new food to go services coupled with the excellent ranges will make sure that Spar Coylton is the place to shop.

“At Spar Scotland, this futuristic approach very much embraces our ongoing commitment to redevelop our business through supporting both our independent retailers and by investing in our store estate.”
