Lidl to take over Whole Foods Giffnock store
The old Whole Foods Market in Giffnock will be turning into a Lidl.
Lidl are continuing their expansion by taking over the ex Whole Foods store and creating 40 jobs. The refurbished store is due to open later on this year.
As well as a refurbishment, an in-store bakery will be added, which will be good but it’s still sad not to have Whole Foods Market.
Lidl UK’s Regional Head of Property, Gordon Rafferty commented: “We are delighted to be opening a new store in Giffnock, marking another milestone in our ambitious store expansion programme.
“We’ve seen incredible demand for Lidl stores across Scotland and look forward to offering our quality products and incredible value to shoppers throughout the local area.”
“We are firmly committed to helping boost the local economy by creating new jobs and working with local suppliers in the development of the new store. Giffnock is a location we have sought for many years and as the town does not currently have a discount supermarket option, we are looking forward to bringing our unique Lidl shopping experience to the local community.”
“We have held positive discussions with both Whole Foods Market and the landlords, who have both been extremely supportive of our proposition to support Giffnock town centre by bringing this well established retail location back into operation as quickly as possible.”
Good to see the site being filled.
