After running their family business in Wellbank for several years, independent retailers Mariam and Samar Hayat have decided to join SPAR Scotland.
At 1200sq ft, the store is located at 2 Mattocks Road, Wellbank, Dundee. The Hayats have run a shop in Wellbank for the last three years but recently invested heavily to refit their store, which will offer Paypoint and Lotto as well as food-to-go options F’Real milkshakes and Tango Ice Blast.
Mariam and Samar said: “We are very much looking forward to opening this new store in the community of Wellbank and surrounding areas.
“We have run the local shop for three years but are so excited about the much wider range of products and services the brand new shop will offer, and the fantastic range and promotions from SPAR.”
The store is only a ten-minute drive from SPAR Scotland wholesaler CJ Lang’s distribution centre in Dundee.
Mike Leonard, Sales Director for SPAR Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Mariam and Samar, not only to SPAR Scotland but also to the network of stores we have across the country.
“From our base in Dundee we offer a constantly expanding supply of over 9,000 products including local suppliers and food-to-go, working with over 300 suppliers and supplying SPAR stores across the country.
“SPAR stores play an important role in communities the length and breadth of Scotland and SPAR Wellbank is an excellent addition to our growing network.”
