A new travel agency has opened in Warrington – providing jobs for three local ex-Thomas Cook staff.
Barrhead Travel is in the Golden Square shopping centre and celebrated with an official launch party.
The Mayor, Cllr Wendy Johnson performed the opening ceremony and an official partnership with Warrington-based children’s charity Jump was announced.
Employees from Warrington’s former Thomas Cook store have been trained at Barrhead Travel’s dedicated training academy in Glasgow. The store will follow Barrhead Travel’s signature conceptual design and will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology and branded experience areas.
The company has more than 90 locations across the UK and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of North-American firm, Travel Leaders Group.
