Learn About Our Project

Learn More

Our retailers are all local start-up businesses from the Lanarkshire area who were looking for the opportunity to grow their business through our project.

 

The Starting Point Project.


Our Project at The Shop@Starting Point is all about giving local people a helping hand to start-up and grow their business idea. Working towards a more attractive, vibrant and sustainable town centre, businesses are given the opportunity to take up residence in our shop unit at 74-76 Graham Street, Airdrie. During their time in the unit they’ll learn everything they need to know about starting-up and running their business..
