Village Market at the Forge Shopping Centre

I know that a number of constituents, as well as business owners, have been worried about the events unfolding in respect of the Village Market at Parkhead Forge, commonly known to a lot of us as “the InShops”. Earlier today (Monday), I had a call with Paul Wishart, the Centre Manager at the Forge to discuss the situation.

I know this is an incredibly worrying time for traders, particularly in the run up to Christmas and a difficult economic backdrop, but I am reassured that the Centre Management have been working very hard to assist traders, indeed 16 tenants of the previous market have been re-sited elsewhere in the centre.

This is going to be a lengthy process but I will keep an open line of communication with Paul and his team and I too remain on hand to assist and traders with any questions or queries they have at this time.
