Cameron Toll Shopping Centre is to become the first location in Scotland to re-let a commercial unit formerly occupied by a BHS store.

The 20,000 sq ft unit, in the middle of Cameron Toll Shopping Centre is to be converted into an Aldi which is expected to open in 2017.

Jim Riddell, Centre Manager said: “Letting the former BHS unit so soon after it closed in August 2016 is extremely positive for the centre and for the other retailers who operate here.

“It highlights how desirable the centre’s location is with shoppers within the city and from further afield.

An Aldi spokesperson said: “We are excited to have secured another Edinburgh store at Cameron Toll Shopping Centre.

This new store will create up to 35 new jobs and we look forward to confirming an opening date in due course.”

Work by Aldi to turn the current unit into an operational space will commence shortly.
