According to the company’s representatives, 99p Stores plans to open 25 new discount stores across Scotland, which will lead to the creation of no less than 500 new jobs. The first store in Scotland is set to open in Ayr, Ayrshire, in May 2013.

99p Stores owner Hussein Lalani said: “Ayr is very much on the up and we are delighted to be opening our very first – of many – planned Scottish stores.”

When any retailer or company sets up plans for such a wide-scale expansion, thoroughly planning their workforce management system is always a good idea, and this is exactly where Tensor’s WinTA.NET Enterprise solution comes into play, as it provides corporate users with total control over the creation of working rules, Access Control, Job Costing and System Security.
