Broadford Co-op will have a grand opening this week following its £3,500,000 overhaul.

The refurbishment has seen the installation of new fuel tanks under a new canopy, the complete refurbishment  of the shop and the resurfacing of the car park.

The petrol filling station now has six new pump islands with 42 nozzles, supplying four grades of fuel as well as LPG, alongside a new Jet wash, car valeting service, and a picnic area for visiting customers to enjoy the stunning scenery.

During the event, Broadford Primary School children will be placing a time capsule in the ground near the shop.

There will also be a ribbon cutting to mark the store's opening after extensive refurbishment.

Daniel Simpson, area manager for Co-op, said: "We would like to thank the community for their understanding and patience during the refit, but we think they will agree that it has been worth the wait. The Co-op is moving forward with a clear purpose and momentum, and our ambition is to ensure the store is a local hub and a real asset for the community.

"We also want shoppers to know that they can become a co-owner and member of their Co-op. Our members make a difference locally and simply by swiping their membership card when they shop with us they are raising much needed funding for organisations in their area who contribute to improving local life."

The event will take place on Friday 5 April at 10am.
