Supermarket giant Morrisons has refused to rule itself out of a bidding war for the First Group bus depot site in Dalkeith.

With Sainsbury’s no longer persuing an interest, it is understood that Morrisons is keen to move into the area.

Site owner Forrest Developments remained tight-lipped when contacted by the Advertiser last week.

Managing director Donald Stewart commented: “The bus station will cease operations in November, and we will then need to sort out what we are doing with the site. Discussions will take place with various parties to determine a final solution. I am not confirming or denying anything.”
