A supermarket chain has announced plans to build a “brand new” store in a Perthshire town.
Supermarket Lidl is set to build a new store in Blairgowrie as part of its UK-wide expansion.
The chain secured the site when it signed a contract with Westpark LLP.
The deal follows planning approval having been granted earlier this year for the first phase of the Westpark development in the town.
The store will be located in the new Blairgowrie Retail Park, with bosses saying it will represent a multi-million-pound investment in the area.
Regional head of property at Lidl, Gordon Rafferty, said: “We are delighted to be opening a new store. We’ve seen incredible demand for Lidl stores across the country and look forward to offering our quality products and incredible value to shoppers in and around Blairgowrie.
“We are firmly committed to helping boost the local economy by creating new jobs and working with local suppliers in the construction of the new store.”
The store will include facilities such as an instore bakery, customer toilets and parking for both cars and bicycles.
Its opening in Blairgowrie comes as Lidl has been identified as the fastest-growing supermarket in the UK, with an 11.4% annual sales increase.
