Vangarde Shopping Park supports local business after appointing York-based firm for security contract

A busy York-based shopping park has appointed locally-based Eboracum for its security and cleaning services after a competitive tender process.

Vangarde Shopping Park has appointed the firm based in Peter Lane, York, which has a proven track record locally in providing security and traffic management services. The appointment comes after the shopping park put its services out to tender nationally.

Eboracum is headed up by former North Yorkshire Police Special Constable Carl Nickson. The firm prides itself in employing local people who are familiar with the local area, as well as supporting local businesses.

Carl said: “It is very pleasing to win a local contract for a vibrant retail destination which people hold in high regard. Vangarde Shopping Park is renowned for its high-quality shopping offer and we are delighted to provide our services to further ensure the customers’ shopping experience is safe and enjoyable.

“After being part of a rigorous tender process, it is great to be able to support another local business and see two York businesses join together for the benefit of the community.”

Vangarde Shopping Park has John Lewis, Next and Marks and Spencer as its three main retailers, with a range of food outlets also on site.

Deborah O’Donnell, Centre Manager for Vangarde Shopping Park, said: “We are always looking to ensure that the Vangarde experience is the best that it can be for all customers. We feel that Eboracum is best placed to ensure that experience remains at the quality that ourselves, and our customers, expect.

“We are also pleased to support a local business which has a great reputation for the services it provides in York – which in turn will support local jobs for our community.”
