Collective effort to tackle business rates

The high cost of non-domestic rates and rents for shop premises on Byres Road was highlighted this week. Bernard Corrigan Fishmonger closed up their shop on Byres Road due to rates and rent bills. This is a great loss to the West End. Thankfully, this fishmonger will continue to source fish from the Glasgow Fish Market and distribute it from their Howard Street depot.

There are many family business on Byres Road that face similar pressures. The one and only butcher on Byres Road, Rodgers, is seeking to attract more customers.
