Uddingston has a thriving high street, with high occupancy levels reflected in a strong blend of high street names and family-owned shops. A compact retail terrace opened in summer 2016, anchored by a large M&S Simply Food beside Costa Coffee and Domino’s Pizza outlets. This complex is flanked by Tesco and Lidl supermarkets, while a Scotmid Co-Operative serves Tannochside. This suburb additionally hosts one of Scotland’s largest collections of furniture and home accessories stores.
