The Home Bargains store is open at Balmakeith. Definitely more choice for consumers in the town now and this is the type of store that people travel out of town to visit, jobs have been created too. There are worries however of potential impact on the High Street.
Update: been up this evening and that was a very good experience. Bargains yes, well worth a look and traffic light entry system if things get too busy. Verdict - will be back.
