Olive Bank Retail Park fully occupied following latest letting to Hey Girls

2,700 sq ft premises snapped up by fast growing social enterprise business

Allied Surveyors Scotland can confirm the letting of Unit 3, Olive Bank Retail Park in Musselburgh to Hey Girls – one of the UK’s fastest growing social enterprise companies.

The business, launched in 2018 by Celia Hodson, is consolidating its head office and pick ‘n’ pack functions from various locations across Scotland into the 2,700 sq ft facility, located on the west side of the East Lothian town.

Hey Girls, which aims to help girls and woman across the UK access free period products via a Buy One Give One business model, has taken a 5-year lease at an undisclosed rent.

The deal was put together on behalf of a private landlord by Iain Mercer, director of commercial agency (east) at Allied Surveyors Scotland.

“This latest letting further underlines the popularity of these units on the periphery of East Lothian’s largest town”, he said.

“Hey Girls will add to an already strong tenant line-up which includes The Paint Shed and Vets 4 Pets”.

Celia Hodson, founder of Hey Girls, commented: "We are really pleased to have been able to work with Iain to secure a unit that is a great fit for our growing multi-award-winning enterprise.

We've now recruited three new team members from local East Lothian residents which further embeds us in the local community and enhances work-life balance for busy parents”.
