SOFA retailer CSL expects to create more than 100 jobs in Scotland this year as it sets up a distribution centre and new stores.

The company, which operates from more than 20 locations in England, will be along the M8 corridor between Edinburgh and Glasgow, with the first shop opening at Abbotsinch Retail Park in Paisley before Easter.

It is investing around £4 million into its Scottish expansion plan. Growth in the south-east of England is also being planned, with a Slough store in May.
