Scottish convenience chain Morning Noon and Night has reported record operating profits, topping the £1m mark for the first time on turnover at £36m for the year to March 31. MN&N piloted c-store ATMs with the Bank of Scotland, well ahead of the competition, and in return Bank of Scotland pledged to put ATMs in all stores. At present 37 out of 41 stores have cashpoints, and the other four are in the process of being fitted with one. Over the past year MN&N's image was revamped in line with the slogan Making life easier'. There were major store refurbishments throughout the estate. Three new outlets were opened in the Inverness area in the last year. Chairman Eddie Thompson said the new stores, at Drumnadrochit, Grantown-on-Spey and central Inverness, all performed well in the winter when the trade is traditionally slack. He added: "The new store in Drumnadrochit, south of Inverness, is taking £24,000 a week, and the peak holiday season has only just got under way." Thompson also revealed: "We are also planning an internet initiative at the moment where customer orders would be delivered to the convenience store." {{NEWS }}
