FROM today, Glasgow council if offering free parking at selected garages in the city centre.
Car parks at St Enoch, Concert Square, Cambridge Street and Buchanan Gallries will suspend parking charges from 5pm during the week as an incentive to bring in shoppers.
Council leader, Gordon Matheson, said: “People from all over Scotland and further afield love to visit Glasgow for its fantastic shops.
“The city has thousands of spaces across its car parks so free parking is yet another great reason why Glasgow is the best place to come for late night shopping.
“Glasgow has a superb range of shops and restaurants and this is all about making it easier for people to spend more time enjoying them.
“We have worked closely with the Chamber of Commerce to support businesses through this initiative which will help to attract even more shoppers to our city centre.
“I know there is pressure on Glasgow businesses and we are committed to various initiatives that will support them.
“As a council, we can see the benefit this move will bring at a time of year when money is tight and I’m delighted that Buchanan Galleries and the St Enoch Centre are also participating.”
The initiative starts today (Monday) and carries on until February 14.
