Shops for Convention Supplies

The best places for these are your larger local supermarkets. The following will sell both party snacks and alcohol.

Be aware that the hours in which shops in Scotland can sell alcohol are from 1000 to 2200.

Morrisons at Merkland Court is the closest big supermarket and easiest by public transport: by rail from the SEC to Partick Station. It is right outside the station. It will also have a limited range of decorations.

Lidl on Finnieston Street will sell snacks and alcoholic and soft drinks, thought not necessarily from immediately recognisable brands.

Sainsburys Local and Tesco Express, both Argyle Street1), will have branded snacks, soft drinks and alcohol but not necessarily a full range.

For Costco members, there is a Costco in Glasgow too; around 3.5 miles from the SEC. Though given what usually happens by accident in Costco, a taxi back is recommended.

The most convenient one-stop shop for office supplies and services are the Ryman Office Supply stores. There are two within reach of the SEC.

Ryman Office Supplies at Byres Road offers printing, laminating, photocopying, scanning and binding. The Union Street store also offers photo printing, same day business cards and same day rubber stamps.

Snappy Snaps on Byres Road offers collection of photo prints. Submission of photos to print can be done on their website.

Though it has to be said that ordering from Amazon direct to your hotel is probably the fastest and easiest of the lot, if less local or friendly to the environment etc.
