This is the first partnership between Harry Gow, which has its headquarters in Inverness, and Asda.

Director David Gow said: “Opening a new shop is always exciting, and it’s been fantastic to see the signage and finishing touches being added over the last few weeks.

“What makes this opening even more special is that it is our first in partnership with Asda, allowing us to bring our products to a far larger audience of shoppers than ever before.

“We’re looking forward to the opportunities this new shop will bring.”

The new shop opening has created 12 jobs.

For the first week, 100 customers each day will receive a free vanilla and raspberry slice – which was named best individual cake in the country at the Scottish Baker of the Year Awards 2022.
