Sun shines on Scotmid

WEATHER was cited as a key factor as Scotmid Co-operative posted “comparable” results for the 26 weeks to July 27.

Recording an operating profit of £2 million for the period, down £0.1m on 2012, Scotmid chief executive John Brodie said the businesses had experienced a slow start to the year due to bad weather but had been able to “catch up” over the summer months.
