Although La Belle continues to thrive and grow, Isabelle and Grace still see plenty of scope for commercial development locally.
Glesga steamies have a long and proud history, but La Belle is no ordinary launderette. Alongside all their high quality washing, tumble drying and ironing services, Grace and Isabelle have given themselves a competitive edge as the only steamie in the city where clients can pay by bank transfer. Local customer and contract clients love this modern approach, and by doing things a wee bit differently, and a big bit better, La Belle have made smashing small business progress since their machines started spinning in 2016.
Although La Belle continues to thrive and grow, Isabelle and Grace still see plenty of scope for commercial development locally. As it is, the nearby businesses look out for each other and support each other through recommendation and referral. There’s potential to develop and make much more of the attractive lanes behind some of the Great Western Road shops. There’s even a secret garden on La Belle’s doorstep which would be great for LGWR fetes and events.
The La Belle ladies would support distinct branding and promotion of the Love Great Western Road area, and the idea of working in partnership with other local traders to tackle issues like the erratic refuse collection, problem parking and security is well worth consideration. Who knows? Maybe collective pressure would result in the arrival of a long-awaited Belmont Lane street sign!
Meantime, commercial and residential clients are safe in the knowledge that their washing, drying and ironing is in safe, expert hands with the lovely La Belle Launderette.
