Supermarkets in Aviemore

Can someone please tell me what supermarkets are in Aviemore and wherabouts they are located. It is four years since we were last in the area and used Tesco but gather on the land Tesco owned a small shopping complex is currently being built and opens early 2018. Is it a trip to Inverness for a large supermarket? Many thanks.

Tesco were going to build a large supermarket on the site that they owned but when their financial irregularities came to light, it was one of the places dropped from their future plans. A Tesco still operates in Aviemore but for a larger one, or an Asda, a trip to Inverness will be required.

Thanks for your replies. Thanks printroom, think I was misinformed or wires got slightly crossed. Know where the Asda is in Inverness and also Elgin. Many thanks.

Was going to say friend up next week she'll check but glad people set you straight on it..it's not huge but had plenty of choice..wonder if they've done the same as our Tesco metro and made it self service checkouts with less choice...hate hate hate that. Stupid machine always says can't scan something..is fine for a couple of items..but people used to have trolley loads..must be losing them money since no big Tesco in or really near Helensburgh although can do online.

Grantown on Spey has a newly refurbished Co OP, a great butcher, the bread pedlar visits Elephants in the Pantry which is a great deli too.

shmagic. Thanks. We are up on Thursday so now know we don't have to do a big shop prior to getting there although we always take a couple of shopping bags full with us to start us off. Used that store many times since it was built. Hoping it's not all self service as that seems to take longer but what will be will be.

joanjock. That makes sense now as was told Aldi, B & M going in the new shopping centre. But also told was being built where Tesco had been last few years.

woodybark. Will be going through Grantown a few times so will take a look at the refurbished coop.

Many thanks to you all.

They are also adding a Marks and Spencer food shop onto the petrol station- not sure when that will be finished, off hand. (Not, the only local petrol is in Carrbridge or Newtonmore)

There is a large Tesco in Inverness, in the retail park just off the A9 on the road to Nairn.
