North-east animal feed firm Harbro has expanded its retail division with the acquisition of Russell’s Country Store.

The Turriff-headquartered company has bought the stores based in Larbert in Falkirk and Linlithgow in West Lothian.

They will continue to trade under Russell’s Country Store branding and the existing staff will join the Harbro team.

Former owners Willie and May Russell will assist with the changeover.

Mr Russell said: “Both businesses share the same focus to provide excellent customer service and value for money, and the acquisition will allow the business to continue to develop in the future.”

The deal will increase Harbro’s retail store presence to 21 outlets across Scotland from Shetland in the north to Dumfries in the south.

Harbro finance director, Ross Baxter, said: “We are delighted to be in a position to expand our retail network and this established business is the perfect fit for our ongoing retail strategy, allowing us to service not only the farming community in the area but giving us scope to continue to expand our business in the equine and pet feed markets.”
