Barrhead Travel has opened a new flagship store in Glasgow.
The Gordon Street shop is split across two levels, with the ground floor as a retail space and the first floor as a dedicated hub for the agency’s specialist sales divisions, including cruise, long-haul and Canada departments.
There is also an events space, a training room and a private meeting room.
More than 35 agents are based in the store, which is the first in the company’s portfolio to be paperless, in line with its sustainability targets.
Additional positions are expected to be added this year, including apprenticeships.
Jacqueline Dobson, president of Barrhead Travel, said: “With travel demand exceeding 2019 levels, we’re pleased to be making significant investments in our team and retail locations.
“Our new flagship store marks the start of an exciting new chapter for Barrhead Travel as the industry embraces continued demand for responsible travel.
“The new space gives us the flexibility to offer a people-first, book human approach that’s designed to offer clients the personalised support they need to secure the holiday of their dreams.
“Although we are now a UK-wide business, Glasgow is our home and we’re delighted to continue to invest in the city with offices and retail premises that will play an important role in skills development and job creation.”
