Ahead of the Scottish Government's Deposit Return Scheme rollout next year, the works will create space for a recycling station to be installed.

Lidl GB’s Regional Head of Property, Gordon Rafferty, commented: “We are committed to delivering outstanding shopping experiences for Lidl customers and are very excited about the improvements we have planned for the store.

“We would also like to say thank you to our customers for their cooperation and understanding while the refurbishment is underway.”

The modernisation forms part of the company’s ongoing £1.3bn expansion and regeneration plans across Great Britain.
