A travel agent has announced plans to revamp its store in Newton Mearns.

Barrhead Travel is also going to transform its shops at the Forge Shopping Centre in Glasgow's East End and at Braehead.

Changes will include new branding, experience-led areas, a furniture refresh and updated store layouts.

It follows the relocation of the Silverburn shopping centre store last year which moved to a larger unit, as well as the opening of a new flagship store on Gordon Street in the city centre.

The investment forms part of a wider programme with more stores planned to undergo refits in the future.

In addition to renovating their stores and modernising their high-street appearance, Barrhead Travel has invested in new uniforms for customer-facing staff, with more modern designs and 25 new pieces to be mixed and matched for every season.

Jacqueline Dobson, president of Barrhead Travel said; “We know from track record that there’s still very much an appetite for travel agents to have a store presence and in turn hope this brings people back to the UK high streets.

“As well as running a successful business that supports local jobs, we also want to be creating a legacy in the cities in which we operate and help the high streets flourish for generations to come.

“By investing in our stores and our employees, we’re reaffirming our commitment and hope that other companies follow suit.”
