MORRISIONS have announced a £1.5 million investment in its Inverurie store that will transform the busy branch into an energy efficient store.
The £1.5 million investment includes new energy saving fridges and lighting and will substantially reduce the store’s carbon footprint. As part of the investment, the store will also undergo a major makeover to make it one of the country’s most exciting supermarkets to shop at with a focus on fresh food.
Morrisons say that the energy improvements will include a new re-frigeration system which will reduce CO2 emissions by 16 per cent and a lighting scheme that will see LED lights fitted across the store. The new lighting will give the store a much brighter feel and reduce energy used for lighting by 55 per cent, which is a 15 per cent reduction in the total energy used by the store.
The transformation of the store will take around 16 weeks to complete and the store will remain open throughout. Store General Manager, Robert Davidson is asking customers to be patient while the changes take place, saying “The store’s going to be fantastic once it’s finished and I’m pleased that we’re doing our bit for the environment - we’re asking shoppers to bear with us if products aren’t in their usual place and if you can’t find something just ask.
“It’s important that the store is fit for the future and that includes being more green. It’s a great investment and once the work’s finished the store will feel much lighter and more airy, as well as being a lot more environmentally friendly.
“The interior of the store is going to look a lot different and better show-off the skills of our experts who will also take part in extra training as part of the investment.”
