A new Co-op supermarket will open in Aberdeen’s King Street tomorrow, Friday, November 24.
The store, which stretches over nearly 4,000 sq ft, will include a free ATM and a customer car park that is also set to include two electric vehicle charging points.
The new shop, which will open every day between 07:00 and 22:00, has created 15 local jobs.
The P&J had exclusive access to the inside of the new Co-op today, hours before its inauguration.
This is what Aberdeen’s new supermarket looks like.
