    Greens gets three new stores in Scotland

    Greens Retail, a leading convenience store retail chain, has completed a trio of new store openings taking the chain up to 19 stores.

    Greens of Dunblane, Greens of Strathblane, and Greens of Ceres have opened over the last six weeks, joining an expanding portfolio of Greens stores across Scotland. The hat-trick of store openings marks a continued significant expansion for the retailer, with the new stores joining the Greens line-up which offers customers a “destination” shopping experience including USPs such as in-store concessions of Pret Express coffee to go; award-winning, Royal-warranted, fifth generation family bakers Fisher and Donaldson; Hot Food to Go and the frozen fizzy drink Skwishee.

    These concessions will provide customers with a range of food and beverage options, including freshly baked goods and coffee.

    “We are thrilled to have three further stores join the Greens family in Scotland,” said Harris Aslam, Group Managing Director. “The phenomenal response from local communities, which we are an integral part of, is testament to the tailored Greens retail proposition as well as passion which our store and central teams clearly have. There is significant growth to come as well as exciting innovations to be announced in the coming weeks and months across our estate. Whilst the current climate is not without its challenges, there certainly remains lots of opportunity to disrupt the sector and we are excited to lead the way with this.”

    To drive footfall into all stores, Greens Retail sister company, Skwishee, hosted their annual Free Skwishee Day on Saturday 22nd April which saw hundreds of customers coming in-store to get a Skwishee for free. The event drove enormous traffic across all Greens stores with many ‘queues out the door’ with excited customers. Store sales also grew substantially due to the unique promotion and increased footfall. Earlier this year, Greens Retail announced its expansion into England as it goes national, after signing a five-year deal with Nisa worth up to £200 million.
