Scallywags1A popular Peterhead children’s clothes shop has expanded into Aberdeen with the opening of a second store.

Scallywags of Peterhead has opened its new outlet at 2 Schoolhill, adjacent to the Bon Accord mall, as demand for its range of baby and childrenswear clothes and toys continues to grow within the north-east.

The new premises are owned by Bon Accord & St Nicholas with the Scallywags brand the latest to join its growing range of retailers.

Its arrival follows the addition of JoJo Maman Bébé to the Bon Accord mall last year and helps enhance the centre’s offering as a go-to destination of choice for all things childrenswear.

Craig Stevenson, manager of Bon Accord & St Nicholas, said:

“Scallywags is already a well-established and respected brand here in the north-east of Scotland so we’re delighted to welcome it to Bon Accord & St Nicholas.

“I’m sure its range of baby and childrenswear will prove popular with shoppers to the centre and its arrival really does strengthen our children’s offering. From Scallywags to the Disney Store and everything in between, we feel we’re moving towards becoming a destination for families to shop within; there’s something for all to enjoy.”

Dawn Strachan, owner of Scallywags, said:

“We’ve been pursuing a second store in Aberdeen for quite some time and we’re delighted to have reached an agreement for the premises near Bon Accord & St Nicholas; we really can’t wait to get properly started in the city.

“Scallywags has been popular in Peterhead and I’d like to thank our loyal customers and staff for being such a central part of our success so far. While our store in Peterhead will continue to operate as normal, the new Aberdeen store is an exciting new chapter for us and we look forward to welcoming shoppers to the store for their first visit in the coming weeks.”

Bon Accord & St Nicholas are at the heart of Aberdeen city centre’s retail sector, offering 840,000 sq ft of prime space and home to around 100 stores. Scotland’s largest Next, Aberdeen’s only Topshop and Topman standalone store as well as the City’s largest New Look and River Island are among the key retailers.

The centres, which attract an average of 275,000 visitors a week, are owned by BMO Real Estate Partners and managed by specialist retail agency Savills. For further on the centres visit www.bonaccordandstnicholas.com.
