Business Incubator and retail academy in Paisley, Scotland

InCube Shop

The InCube Shop, based at 9B Gilmour Street in Paisley, is part of InCube, Invest in Renfrewshire’s local creative retail business hub

The InCube Shop is a unique concept which supports both local designers and local unemployed people.

The shop sells products which have been created by some of the designers, makers and artists who have completed the InCube business incubator programme.

The shop also offers guest trading slots for local creative designers or makers who are considering moving into retail.

Due to this the range of goods available can change regularly. This can include jewellery, home accessories, scarves, hats, childrenswear, original art and more!

The core focus of the shop though is to provide learning and work placements to local unemployed people who are interested in developing a career in retail.

Trainees complete an in-depth development programme, ensuring they have the right mixture of knowledge and skills to progress into work with local retail businesses.

Please feel free to drop into the shop to discuss with our InCube Shop Team
