Fishkeeper Scotland to double number of stores
Aquatic retailer Fishkeeper Scotland is doubling its number of stores north of the Border as part of a £500,000 expansion project involving the creation of about 25 jobs.
Fishkeeper Scotland, part of Maidenhead Aquatics, said the launch at the weekend of its new store at the Dobbies garden centre at Braehead had broken all visitor records.
The new Braehead store is the eighth in Scotland. Fishkeeper said it planned to open another six sites in Scotland, three this year and three early in 2017.
Fishkeeper Scotland said more than 1,500 people visited its Braehead store over the launch weekend, to look at the range of more than 5,000 exotic invertebrates and tropical freshwater, marine, coldwater and pond fish from around the world, including discus and clownfish.
