(15 Jan 2015) - Stirling.co.uk updates to Shopping area

During the run up to the ballot for the Stirling BID, the city centre shopping areas of Stirling.co.uk are being upgraded for both Independent businesses and national retailers based in the Thistles shopping centre.

The initial work has focussed on all the independent businesses located in Upper Craigs. This old Stirling street is a hive of entrepreneurial spirit, with owner run and managed businesses providing a range of services.

Home to over 30 Stirling businesses ranging from bars and restaurants to a variety of professional services, household goods suppliers, fashion retailers and personal lifestyle services, there is a surprising amount on offer on Upper Craigs. See Stirling.co.uk/uppercraigs/

Business owners based in Upper Craigs can currently post adverts, notices and offers directly to this page, simply by using the #UpperCraigs on any twitter posting. This is a free service currently offered by Stirling.co.uk to demonstrate just one of the many benefits of being part of the Stirling BID.

The listing of The Thistles shopping centre has also been upgraded on the website, with links to the offers for customers on their official website. Furthermore, a video playlist has been created to showcase many of the national retailers based in the Thistles. See Stirling.co.uk/theThistlesShoppingCentre/

Tony I'Anson of Stirling.co.uk said, "there is still a fair amount of work to complete on the website upgrades over the next 2 months, although we anticipate being ready to show all potential Stirling BID members what is possible if the BID is successful. In the long term we would like to work with all local businesses during this process and are fully supportive of the Stirling BID"
