Eddy’s Food Station, a new convenience store retailer, has opened its first of 30 new sites today (Wednesday 11 May 2022), creating 14 new jobs in Alloa.
The opening comes amid plans to open a further 30 stores, which will create 500 roles across central Scotland, over the next five years.
Alloa, Clackmannanshire is the first flagship of a new chain of Eddy’s Food Station stores, the newest venture from Stephen Thompson, former CEO and co-founder of Morning, Noon and Night.
The expansion of the Eddy’s Food Station network will see a combination of new sites and the conversion of existing convenience store locations.
Thompson said: “The opportunity to operate a successful chain of convenience stores is very promising right now and this venture is an extremely exciting first leg of a long journey for the Eddy’s Food Station brand.
“The retail industry is an industry I know and love. It’s an avenue I’ve always wanted to return to and I couldn’t be happier that it’s finally happening. We’re investing heavily in resources and research into our offering and we’re passionate about giving our customers an unrivalled, superior experience.”
