Helping Dumfries 'flourish'

‘A NEW way of shopping’ is to be encouraged in Dumfries.

The Guild Dumfries C.I.C are redeveloping and moving into a new space at 111 High Street and aiming to to create a permanent home for a year round retail collective on the ground floor, open 6 days a week for a minimum of 12 months.

They are working on the project with the Midsteeple Quarter and said: “We want to encourage a new way of shopping which supports small independent brands and gives them a chance to showcase their wares in a prime site location. We’ll carefully curate a fantastic selection of makers, creatives, food and drinks producers all under one lovely Dumfries roof.”

And applications to join them are now open.

Revealing more, The Guild team said: “Our new space won’t just be a shop, we’ll also have a dedicated workshop space, flexible meeting| events space and offices on the first floor too. As part of the project, we will deliver a variety of activities and a programme of events, including creative workshops, art clubs, exhibitions and talks, more details coming soon.

“We are keen to collaborate and work with various other partners during this project, so we can create a community of individuals, organisations and businesses that can work together, thrive and flourish in the one building.

“We want to create a vibrant, inspiring and welcoming community space, a place for sharing skills, meeting new people and creating connections plus of course shopping local too.”

Named ‘Flourish Dumfries’, it is scheduled to open in November.
