Dobbies and Tesco plan first joint new build store in Scotland

Dobbies and Tesco have announced plans to build their first joint new build store in Scotland where customers will be able to access both businesses through a single entrance.

Dobbies and Tesco plan first joint new build store in Scotland

The site at Redwood Drive in East Kilbride already has planning permission for both a stand-alone supermarket and a Dobbies Garden Centre, but Tesco and Dobbies now plan to hold a public consultation in December on plans for a joint store as part of a new detailed planning application.

The new development is expected to bring over 400 jobs to East Kilbride.

Adam Williams, Tesco corporate affairs manager, said: “We are excited to be sharing these new plans with the local community. This new format will be the first of its kind in Scotland and we look forward to getting feedback on our plans.

“Customers will be able to access both the Tesco store and Dobbies through a single entrance, joined by the popular Dobbies restaurant at the front of the store. The store will provide a fantastic shopping experience and bring more choice and value for money to shoppers in East Kilbride.”

The garden centre, which will offer more than 10,000 plants, shrubs and trees, will include a specialist aquatics department, a restaurant and a food market offering locally-grown produce from Lanarkshire.

Stuart Wright, director of property at Dobbies, said: “Our plans for East Kilbride brings a new-generation retail and garden centre to the area which will not only offer quality, range and value to customers who love their home and garden; but also a unique day-out destination for all the family to enjoy.”
