Family-run and bucking current consumer shopping trends, Home Bargains has now opened store number seven in St Rollox, Glasgow. This recent expansion adds to the company's Scottish portfolio, starting back in 2008 in Rutherglen. While other big names on the high street are going bust, Home Bargains sees continuing business growth with this recent £5 million investment. The store is one of the newest additions to the Home Bargains empire, joining their 500+ stores nationwide.
This latest Home Bargains new-build store is situated in the bustling and accessible community of Springburn Road, Glasgow. Other retailers who have recognised the benefits of such a prime location include Macdonalds, Tesco Extra and Lidl. A notable aspect of Home Bargains' success is their savviness in identifying the economic potential of locations like the 20,000 sq foot Springburn unit.
The success of Home Bargains is underpinned by an understanding of consumer requirements. Shoppers can get so much online these days, but still enjoy a bargain - there is something satisfying about finding branded goods with a reasonable price label. The St Rollox store is no exception and offers a comprehensive range of products to meet every consumer taste. The variety of goods on offer taps into the need for popular products such as homeware and groceries alongside treats including sweets, alcohol and fancy goods.
The new Home Bargains store offers much-needed jobs to boost the Glasgow economy, with up to 40 jobs being created at the Springfield Road unit - providing 200+ jobs within the company's Scottish operations overall.
It will be interesting to follow the progress of the St Rollox store and its impact on the local economy - will the Home Bargains consumer juggernaut continue to expand across Scotland? Time will tell but Scottish shoppers are certainly set to benefit with the latest Glasgow store.
