Waitrose Helensburgh opens its doors
Waitrose has opened its sixth Scottish store and 300th outlet in the UK as a whole in the seaside town of Helensburgh.

Designed by Cooper Cromar and built by Barr Construction the scheme offers 36,000sq/ft of gross space and is part of a larger expansion drive by the John Lewis owned chain.

Barr operations manager Derek Simpson, which has just one a £12m contract to deliver a new store in Chester, said: “As the first
Waitrose we have handled all construction and fit out activity for, the Helensburgh store has been a flagship project for Barr.

“On the back of the Helensburgh opening, it is especially pleasing to announce our second construction and fit out project with the retailer.”

A Milngavie branch of Waitrose is expected to follow next year and plans are currently in train for another outlet in Ayr.
