Barrhead opens experiential store in Glasgow

Barrhead Travel has opened its newest experiential store in Port Glasgow Retail Park.

The new store will replace its previous store in Greenock's Oak Mall and is twice the size.

The relocation is part of a £2.5m expansion project.

The store team has also doubled, bringing the number to 17 travel consultants, led by manager Roseanne Gauge.

Barrhead president Sharon Munro said: "We are extremely proud to be not only expanding our stores throughout the UK, but also growing our branches where we already have an established local presence.

"We have invested heavily in our team, location and technology to create an experiential store that pushes the boundaries of travel in retail."

The store will house a dedicated cruise, long-haul and VIP area as well as a three-person foreign currency unit.

In-store technology includes an appointment booking area controlled by Smart TV equipment.

In the last year, Barrhead has opened stores in Belfast, the agency's first store in Northern Ireland, Southampton, which marked brand presence in South England and most recently, Fort Kinnaird.
