Co-op snaps up grocery chain

A 200-year-old family-owned store chain in Scotland has been snapped up by the Co-op, for an undisclosed sum, as part of the latest expansion at the UK's fifth biggest grocer.

David Sands, which employs 700 people at 28 convenience store outlets in Fife, Kinross and Perthshire, was hailed as a major acquisition by the Co-op.
