Tesco is pledging support for the Discover Lanark BID Business Plan and will be voting YES in the forthcoming ballot.
Richard McAllister, Lanark Tesco Manager said “Tesco is passionate about supporting our local community here in Lanark and we are in full support of the Discover Lanark BID Business Plan. We believe that all businesses large and small should have an ‘all hands to the pump’ approach, working together for the benefit of Lanark”.
Our Steering Group Chairman, Graeme McLeish added “Supporting the Discover Lanark BID is a great opportunity for the town to work together and make the changes we all want. As a collective we will have the opportunity to access external assistance and funding not available to individual businesses. Size also gives us a much stronger voice to make our wishes known and take back some control of our town. Discover Lanark is about more than retail, it’s about embracing all parts of the town’s economy. It’s about delivering benefits to all the town’s businesses and crucially, it’s about giving businesses of all sizes a unified voice. Remember, make sure you use your vote and have your say. The Ballot closing date is 28th February 2019 – don’t miss your chance to be part of shaping Lanark’s future for the better!”
The Discover Lanark BID ballot will commence on 12th January 2019, with the ballot papers and copies of the BID Business Plan being posted out to local businesses eligible to vote for the BID.
