Small retailers are being given the chance of free space at one of the region’s busiest shopping centres – and expert advice – to help them grow their business.
Telford Centre says it is marking Independent Retailer Month in July by supporting small, local businesses to help them bring their ideas to life and test them out on consumers.
The centre says it will offer successful applicants free space, expert advice and support so they can retail their products throughout the month.
A centre spokesman said: "We are looking for local, independent, small business ideas that need a step up and the opportunity to help bring their ideas to life.
"Whether your business is a new idea, or has an existing online presence but you are looking to explore the retail environment, Telford Centre wants to hear from you.
"The successful candidates will receive space free of charge at the centre to retail their product during Independent Retailer Month.
They will also receive free expert advice and support to help understand the shopping centre environment and customer expectations.
"This is the perfect opportunity for anyone wanting to test their products or services in front of consumers in a shopping centre environment and also take advantage of the experienced marketing and commercialisation team at Telford Centre."
To be considered for the opportunity, send a business proposal outlining your idea to [email protected] by June 14. Successful candidates will also be required to provide additional documents and have their own public liability insurance.
