Groceries

As well as a major chain supermarkets, Gorgie is home to a few more niche grocery shops as well, clustered together by the railway bridge at Wheatfield Road.

Visit the Polska Masarnia (Polish Butcher) for traditional Polish products, and Ya Kareem for Halaal meats and continental foods. There’s also Krishna Foods and Starlight Chinese mini market, so you can cater to a vast range of cuisines and tastes from your own kitchen.

Interiors

Gorgie and Dalry have loads of shops selling furniture, homewares, carpets, DIY supplies and everything you need to update your home.

For furniture, you can browse for a bargain at the British Heart Foundation shop. Or you can head to Richard F Mackay for top brand furniture, fitted kitchens and flooring. There are more flooring options at Capital Carpets too.

The Hamptons Home Store in Dalry is a great spot to shop for furniture and finishing touches.
