Tarbert, Inverness, Aberdeen…and now Glasgow. Today is the day for the rapidly growing Essence of Harris brand as they opened the doors of their latest store in Princes Square in Glasgow this morning. (Wednesday October 30th) .
Company founders Jamie McGowan and Deenie Macleod, along with one of their new employees Caris, were on hand this morning to welcome the first customers from 10am.
Jamie said:"We’re lucky to have been able to create seven new jobs here in Glasgow, made up largely of young, dynamic staff members who hail from the Outer Hebrides themselves and who can share our story with consumers within Glasgow. Job creation is one of the key drivers behind our brand.”
Katie Moody from Princes Square said, “We’re delighted to welcome Essence of Harris - a successful and ambitious Scottish business - to Princes Square. Visitors to the centre come from near and far to enjoy the wide range of high quality retailers we have here and Essence of Harris will be a wonderful addition to that list.”
And James adds: “You'll find us on the first floor, just at the top of the staircase!
The team say: “Looking forward to meeting all you shoppers in Glasgow!”
