First retail store poised for Countesswells

SAINSBURY’S is to become the first retail outlet at Aberdeen’s new and growing town, Countesswells.

The retailer will open a 4,000 sq ft Local store within the neighbourhood centre that is currently under construction. This is beside the site of the forthcoming primary school and at the heart of the first phase of the development.

Construction works will complete in May 2021 and the store is expected to open in the summer.

Martin Dalziel, project director at Countesswells Development Limited said, “We have been working hard to secure our first retail outlet within the growing town of Countesswells and are very pleased to make this announcement. I am sure it will be welcomed by residents.

“Sainsbury’s is a brand that is very much aligned with the aspirations of Countesswells.  This investment in the new community supports local jobs and provides a much-needed local supermarket. It underlines our drive to make Countesswells a highly sought after and desirable residential community.”

Patrick Dunne, Sainsbury’s property director added, “We’re excited about our plans to open a new store in the growing Countesswells community. This convenience store will offer customers great quality food at competitive prices. Our Local stores are tailored to the community to ensure we’re well placed to deliver for our customers. We know customers value the convenience of Sainsbury’s Local stores and I know this brand new store in Countesswells will be very popular with residents and visitors.”
