Mayor’s upbeat message as she opens another independent town centre business
Go-ahead Seaton is bucking the trend of high street shop closures.
That was the upbeat message from Mayor Gaynor Sedgwick when she opened the town centre’s latest independent businesses yesterday (Wednesday).
She cut a ribbon at a new hair and nail salon – Totally Polished - in Fore Street, after town crier David Craner had performed a welcoming proclamation.
The business is being run by local woman Tracy Cottam and has already been given a big thumbs up by customers.
Marketing expert Karin Frewin, of the Seaton Town Development Team, said the resort’s commercial heart was thriving.
“Seaton is currently bucking the national trend for high street shops closing,” she said.
“We have new shops opening all the time - the most recent being The Shed and now this brand new nail and hair salon. We have only a couple of empty shops at present.”
