Virgin Trains are supporting the work of entrepreneurs, by encouraging local traders to do business in their station lounges.
The rail network operator is opening the doors of its Cheshire Lounge at Crewe Station every Wednesday, with local producers taking up the opportunity to showcase their products. The initiative aims to both enhance customer experience and support local business.
“Virgin Trains has enjoyed amazing support from customers and businesses over the past few months and we’d like to give something back,” explained Station manager Sheila Breeze to the Crewe Chronicle.
“Cheshire has so much to offer in terms of products and services and Virgin Trains would love to help play a part in bringing these offerings closer to our customers. The Cheshire Lounge is a wonderful space to meet people and display products, and I’m confident the local community will welcome this initiative with great enthusiasm.”
The move by Virgin Trains to offer rail travellers something a little different on their journey comes off the back of the success of their ‘pet therapy’ sessions, which took place in the lounges last year.
