Waitrose announces plans for Helensburgh store
Premium chain grocer Waitrose has announced a continuation of its expansion plans with a new Helensburgh store in the offing.

It follows the opening of a new 25,000sq/ft store and petrol station in Newton Mearns today as the firm seeks to broaden its consumer reach.

The Newton Mearns store is located in the sprawling Greenlaw Village development, an out of town retail park developed by Gleniffer Estates on Glasgow’s suburban fringe.

Nigel Keen, Waitrose director of development, said: “We believe that a new store in Helensburgh will provide a boost to the local economy and will allow us to continue to work with local and Scottish suppliers to bring their products to Waitrose customers.”

Ok firstly no mention of where it will be?

Also about time Helensburgh has always been a one supermarket town and deserves some competition.
