Over the last few months I’ve received many messages asking who is moving nto the old Clydesdale Bank Building in Glasgow Road, across from the top of Station Road.
Well, this week it was revealed that it’s none other than Blantyre long standing travel agency business, “Glen Travel”, something the business has now confirmed directly to me.
The Blantyre Travel Agency was established in 1973 by David Glen of Station Road with premises in Bellshill and along with staff moved into Clydeview Shopping Centre in the early 1980’s.
Since then, their successful business has prospered and with many more staff now employed, it was time for them to seek larger premises. Staying in the local area, a brand and name we’re all familiar with, Glen Travel are currently renovating the former Clydesdale Bank building, which closed last August.
The travel agents intend to move during early Summer, depending on work required to be done in the coming weeks. I’m sure you’ll all join me in wishing Glen Travel the very best of success on the next stage of their business ventures.
