Waitrose reveals plans for a Milngavie store


UP-MARKET food chain Waitrose has unveiled plans to set up shop in Milngavie - creating 180 new jobs in the process.

Store bosses confirmed this week that they plan to consult over their intention to create a new supermarket on a part of West of Scotland Rugby Club’s grounds at Burnbrae.

They say they will embark upon an “extensive programme” of public consultation about their plans.

This will include a public exhibition where Waitrose will gather people’s views to help shape the final proposals.

They said they are “working closely” with West and developers Town Centre Securities over the scheme.
