Eros Retail has added a Costcutter store in Ellon, Aberdeenshire to its expanding estate.

The store, which Eros said has seen little investment in the last five to 10 years, will be given a makeover and adopt ‘Greens of Ellon’ branding in line with the company’s other sites.

As well as a relaunched food-to-go concept, the store will offer a Skwishee machine, F’Real milkshakes, a Greens Butchery counter, bean-pressed coffee and a bakery.

A spokesperson for Eros Retail said: “The location, framework, store team and customer footfall is perfect to adopt the Eros methodology and attract patrons not only locally but from all the surrounding areas.”

Eros received a £945,000 finance package from HSBC Bank at the start of 2019 to fund its expansion. The Ellon launch follows the opening of a Greens Local in the Fife town of Cardenden in February.
