Up and running at new offices

THE first residents of the newly refurbished offices at Clarendon House, Victoria Avenue are now quite literally up and running.

Harrogate-based Up & Running has moved all its head office team under one roof. The nationwide specialist running retailer has taken half of the third floor for their new office space. The senior management team, finance, admininstration, marketing, websales and design offices have all come together to ease communication between the departments as the company grows, and provide an enhanced support network for the shop managers and franchisees throughout the country.

Managing director Dennis Macfarlane said: “We are a Harrogate company which has expanded on an enormous scale over the past three years so that we now have 26 stores nationwide, and as we continue to grow we have been taking on new staff to keep up with the growing business. We felt the time was right to for us to develop our head office team further to support the existing and new shops.”
