Construction of Tesco's sixth eco-store in Scotland is to start at the end of the year in Galston.

The store will be built "on stilts" a method Tesco has used in the past to provide car parking at ground level and retail space above as the store is situated on a flood plain.

The retailer, which has pledged £370,000 towards upgrading Galston town centre, consulted with the local community and discovered that only 10% of people living locally did their weekly shop in the area.
