Fashion retailer Matalan has submitted plans to convert a former Aberdeen toy shop into a new store.
Matalan has defied the gloom on the high street with rising revenues in the first quarter of its financial year.
Matalan boss Jason Hargreaves took home £1.5 million last year after securing a successful refinancing package for the business.
Concerns have been raised over plans for a two-storey drive-thru restaurant in a north-east town.
A RETAILER today reassured customers it was not closing its Aberdeen store.
