Plea from Kirky Arcade

A plea has gone out in Kirkintilloch as shops and businesses bid to get back to some sort of normal trading after lockdown.

Shop owners at the Kirky arcade are appealing to shoppers not to forget them, because they are not at street level.

One shop owner said: “It has been great to see places coming to life again. We all want local businesses to thrive in our local community - please don’t forget about us down in the arcade.

“If you don’t know what’s there, it just takes a couple of minute to pop down and check it out.”
