Facelift com­pleted

Rutherglen Reformer - - You Decide -

Ex­ten­sive work to up­grade the Ruther­glen Ex­change shop­ping cen­tre has been com­pleted.

As part of the on­go­ing re­fur­bish­ment of the cen­tre, the lift was re­paired while work took place on the mall cafe.

The Big Cof­fee Cup had to close for a cou­ple of weeks to al­low the work to be car­ried out, re­sult­ing in a new, mod­ern eat­ing area that com­ple­ments the brighter main square.

Cen­tre man­ager Jane Cowan said: “It has been a long haul but the cen­tre has made it.

“To top this off, the lift in the shop­ping cen­tre has had ex­ten­sive re­pairs car­ried out on it.

“Our loyal cus­tomers have been so tol­er­ant with all the dis­rup­tion and we would re­ally like to thank them for their pa­tience.”

The lift required a sig­nif­i­cant amount of work, having been in place for over 30 years.

Now the cen­tre is look­ing for­ward to show­cas­ing its new look.

“We are kick­ing off an au­tumn of ex­cit­ing events with a visit from the Book­bug bear on Satur­day, Septem­ber 6. He is com­ing to visit all the chil­dren that come to our monthly Kids Clubs.”

A cal­en­dar of events then fol­lows, tak­ing the cen­tre up to Christ­mas and be­yond.
