About this event
If you run a business or charity based on the high street, then your pandemic experiences were even more challenging than for most; and the options ahead can remain hard.
If you are running a physical shop or service, there are specific logistical hurdles to continue to address and overcome, but the opportunities with a renewed focus on local communities, independent retailers and the new Class E planning classification all mean the positives do outweigh the negatives.
We will offer tried and tested practical solutions, with plans to refer back to when you next need to innovate, adapt or pivot.
The session will focus on:
- Planning ahead with insights on high street trends
- How to find the right location for your premises
- How to focus on what and where is making you money
- Streamline options to adapt to low staffing and goods supply
- Continuing to re-open and introduce new services.
Join us if you have a high-street-based business, whether a restaurant, café, retail shop, beauty salon, hairdressers or other. We are here to support you to keep going.
