THE REVIVAL and rejuvenation of Carnoustie High Street continued this week with the opening of the Treat Urself salon at the junction of Carnoustie High Street and Queen Street.
The official opening was carried out by Councillor Brian Boyd, together with Carnoustie Business Association (CBA) chairman Peter Burke.
Owner Jennifer Taylor, herself a CBA committee member, had run her business in the mid-High Street since September of last year but had found the premises too small as her customer base expanded.
Her move to the Cross - as the Queen Street and High Street junction is locally known - has delighted both Councillor Boyd and Mr Burke.
Councillor Boyd commented: “Property owners are beginning to realise that it’s better to have some income from their investments rather than none and letting them lie empty.
“Angus Council’s policy of zero-tax rating also encourages businesses to open up and provide local services for Carnoustie.”
Mr Burke said: “The Carnoustie Business Association has fought long and hard to encourage owners to let out their properties at sensible rents.
“Not only do they benefit, but so does the town. There is nothing more depressing in a town centre than closed-down shops lying empty.
“We wish Jennifer every success in her move.”
Treat Urself offers a range of beauty services including acrylic and gel nail extensions, eyelash extensions, waxing, fragrance spray tanning and many others. It also supplies beauty products, handbags, and handcrafted jewellery by Monica Sharf.
