Pinkie Farm Convenience Store proudly celebrated its tenth anniversary on 31st May 2024.

Over the past decade, the SPAR convenience store located in Musselburgh, East Lothian, has been serving its local community by providing exceptional customer service, high quality products, excellent store standards and a welcoming atmosphere.

Pinkie Farm Convenience Store was built on the site of the old Pinkie Farm in 2014. Originally set up and run by Colin Smith, the store was taken over by Dan Brown in 2018, who had worked closely with Colin when the store was first opened. The store underwent a major refit in 2019, which saw the introduction of new food-to-go concepts and a significantly increased chilled range, and the store has continued to evolve since. Dan’s partner, Nicole, joined the business in 2022, a pivotal year for the store as it changed its supply partners to SPAR Scotland.
The store has been at the heart of its community for ten years, carrying out regular seasonal events and raising thousands of pounds for local causes and charities.

Dan Brown, Managing Director, said: “We are incredibly grateful to our loyal customers and dedicated staff for their support over the past ten years. This anniversary is a testament to the hard work and commitment of our team and the trust of our local community. Our ambition is to keep evolving the store to give our community a store they can be proud of.”

To commemorate the significant milestone, the store held a huge event for local shoppers to enjoy.

SPAR Scotland provided shoppers with over one hundred goody bags, vouchers to save money whilst shopping in the store, the iconic SPAR Spinning Wheel with great prizes, a prize draw for 4 x £50 SPAR vouchers and face painting for children visiting. Suppliers, SPAR Brand and the Healthy Living Programme attended and provided food and drink sampling.

Over the years Pinkie Farm has actively contributed to the local community through various events and during the anniversary event a donation of £250 was given to Pinkie Primary School and the charity Firststep.

Brian Straiton, Independent Sales Director at SPAR Scotland, said: “Our partnership with Pinkie Farm is very important to us and to show our appreciation for the positive impact the team continue to make in Musselburgh, we provided the store and the local community with a fun birthday party.

“Dan and Nicole work tirelessly to provide shoppers with the best of local produce, a clean and welcoming store and employment for local people. The store has continually adapted to meet the evolving needs of its customers, introducing new products and services while maintaining the highest of standards. Congratulations SPAR Pinkie Farm – we are excited to work with you over the next decade and beyond.”
