Innovative bookmaker Paddy Power doesn't seem to be hurting during the economic recession. In fact, the company is expanding into Scotland by opening 80 new shops by the end of 2011.

Company CEO Patrick Kennedy had this to say to Gambling911:

"Scottish punters have already experienced significant exposure to the unique brand offering of Paddy Power through our phone and online betting services. This move to ground and complement our brand with a bricks and mortar presence is very exciting and we look forward to bringing our unbeatable range of products and service to Scotland."
