Fulton MacGregor was pleased to officially cut the ribbon and open Coatbridge’s latest independent business called Heart Style on Friday 15th December 2017. The outlet is located in the Bank Street shopping precinct.
Commenting, owner Jillian Letham said;
“Heart Style offers customers a selection of fresh, new contemporary home, luxury gift brand items at affordable prices, which are fashion forward and trend led. I am grateful for the support I received from Lanarkshire Gateway, The Coatbridge SMART accelerator programme and of course my family and friends”.
Commenting Fulton MacGregor said;
“I was delighted to open Heart Style and I encourage my constituents to support this local shop. I see small businesses being the backbone to our economy, providing an invaluable service to consumers, supporting local jobs and growth in our communities, something which I am very passionate about.
It’s great to see the Scottish Government’s Business Rates Initiate working for businesses such as Jillian’s, where they pay little or no rates at all. I praise the work of organisations such as Lanarkshire Business Gateway in providing free support for new and existing local businesses, and those involved in the SMART accelerator 12-week business programme.
I’m pleased to say there has been a number of independent, locally run businesses establish in my constituency over recent months, I wish them all the best for the future and I hope to welcome more in 2018”.
