July 20, 1991. Morning, Noon & Night has acquired two stores from Scotland's longest serving VG retailer. The acquisition, from former Watson & Philip customer Beatt & Tait, also puts the convenience chain ahead of its development schedule, giving it nine stores. The two stores, near Dundee, together turn over £37,000 a week. On Monday both stores took over the Mace Convenience Express fascia. MN&N now has four ex-Spar, two ex-VG and three traditional Mace units. MD Eddie Thompson said: "Since MN&N started trading all the stores have increased sales." {{COUNTERPOINT }}
