A new branch of a popular travel agent is set to open its doors in Arnold town centre next week.
Holidaymakers will be able to book a holiday to remember with the help of a team of six travel experts that have more than 165 years of experience between them at The Midcounties Co-operative Travel, which opens on Front Street this Wednesday (August 29).
The new 1,126 sq ft branch, which has created six new jobs will be holding an official launch event on Saturday, September 22, from 10.30am, featuring a special celebrity guest.
The independent travel agent, which was named ‘Central England Large Agency of the Year’ for the sixth time at the 2018 Agent Achievement Awards, will offer a huge range of holidays and will be the only agent in Arnold to offer Jet2holidays, with frequent flights from both East Midlands and Birmingham Airports.
Nick McCree, who has more than 25 years of experience in the travel industry and has spent most of his career with the Midlands Co-operative, will be leading the new team as Branch Manager.
Former Ilkeston Co-op colleague and local Arnold resident Sarah Decosteras will be joining him as Assistant Branch Manager with 36 years of travel experience under her belt.
Natalie Turner, Head of Branches at The Midcounties Co-operative Travel, said: “Our six new colleagues are already well-known in Arnold, having worked in the town for most of their careers. Each bring with them at least 12 years of experience in the travel industry and we’re pleased to be welcoming them to our new branch to help local residents book their dream holidays.”
Nick McCree, Arnold branch manager, said: “We’ve worked with many customers in Arnold for numerous years now and hope to see some familiar faces through the doors of the new branch this month.
“We’ll be offering a broad range of holiday options for local holidaymakers, all underpinned by our commitment to ensure we make a positive impact in the communities we serve.”
