A Stirling shopping centre is celebrating after receiving a four-star Quality Assurance rating from Scotland’s national tourism organisation.
The Thistles Shopping Centre, which is located in the city centre, was upgraded after successfully implementing all of the recommendations given by VisitScotland.
As a benchmark for quality, VisitScotland’s Quality Assurance Scheme operates across accommodation, visitor attractions and food sectors.
As well as achieving the rating, the centre has also become the newest addition to VisitScotland’s Information Partner (VIP) Programme.
The innovative scheme is designed to allow those working within the tourism industry to become local ambassadors for their town or region by providing first-class information to visitors.
Staff within the centre already provide information and inspiration to visitors by actively promoting their local area and the services offered by local businesses.
The Thistles Shopping Centre is one of around 1450 businesses across the country who have joined the partnership scheme. The popular complex give customers an unrivalled selection of over 90 shops and makes shopping an ultimate experience.
