Glasgow 2014 opens first official merchandise store
The first official merchandise store for this summer's Commonwealth Games has opened in Glasgows Central Station.
Launched this morning by Glasgow 2014 deputy chief executive Ty Speer and weightlifter Peter Kirkbride, the outlet is the first of more than 40 stores planned for competition venues and other sites across the city.
Open seven days a week, the store will sell official Glasgow 2014 merchandise, Team Scotland goods as well as replicas of the competition’s mascot Clyde.
Run by Venue Retail 2014 Limited, the new stores will create several hundred temporary jobs in Glasgow.
Speer said: “We are delighted to be opening our first official merchandise store in the heart of Glasgow. Central Station is one of Glasgow’s main commuter hubs with around 750,000 people passing through every week making it the ideal place to showcase our range of Glasgow 2014 goods.
“For people arriving in Glasgow for the Games, the retail store will be their first experience of Glasgow 2014 and we are confident it will be a memorable one.”
