Popped along to the opening of the new Whole Foods Market in Giffnock, what a busy place. It seemed like the whole of the southside was visiting.
Loved the makeover of the outside of the store. The old Morrisons/Safeway decor was pretty boring, the use of the wood certainly brightens up the place (if only they could do something with the Burnfield Road side tho).
As soon as you go in the fresh food hits you, lovingly stacked fruit and veg. A wide array of them, great to see somewhere else selling Padron peppers (Waitrose sell them too).
the deli counters are awash with excellent cheeses and meats, haven’t checked the price comparison with Ian Mellis, but for us southsiders it’s a lot handier.
Large selection of Scottish beers in stock.
Favourite bit has to be the re-fillable beer and wine area. Brewdog and West on draught as well as a not too bad red and white.
Lots of selection on all items covering organic, eco-friendly and American brands, my only gripe was that some items seemed pretty dear in comparison to other shops. Bought some bits n bobs but the sort of place to pick up some luxuries, I’d hate the think how much a “real” shop would cost.
