Seaside Travel is celebrating the successful opening of its fourth high street shop.
The Hartlepool branch, which began trading in November, has already seen a flow of customers and booked a £12,000 holiday to Florida.
It joins a network of shops, including one in Wingate, which opened in 2018; another in Easington, which opened in 2016; and a third in Sacriston, which launched the brand in 2001.
Staff members in Hartlepool have previously worked at Hays Travel and Going Places.
“I am really proud of Hartlepool, they are good people in a good community there,” said Nicola Park, Seaside’s owner. “I think it’s going to be a busy shop.”
Park said she had not been looking to expand, but took advantage of an opportunity when it presented itself.
