Massive European retailer to open THREE new stores – with one in Glasgow



Danish family-owned brand Sostrene Grene will bring its signature Scandinavian-inspired lifestyle store to Buchanan Street later this year. 

This marks the second city location, as it previously opened a store in St Enoch Centre.

It offers a selection of homewares, soft furnishings, kitchen products, furniture, gifts, crafts and toys at budget-friendly prices.

No opening dates have been confirmed yet, but Sostrene Grene will also open stores at Bon Accord Shopping Centre in Aberdeen and Waverley Market in Edinburgh in the coming months.

With more than 285 stores worldwide, the company aims to open 500 stores globally by 2027 with a further 50 of these in the UK. 

UK Joint Venture partners, Norma Jacob and Richard Power, who run Sostrene Grene stores across Scotland, Northern Ireland and southern England, are excited to announce the upcoming openings.

Norma said: “Following the success of our current Glasgow store, we are thrilled to announce our Scottish expansion with locations in Aberdeen, Edinburgh and a second in Glasgow.”

Richard added: “Scotland is a key focus for us, and we look forward to introducing new and returning customers to our upcoming openings.
