Following the success of our competition in Boscombe, we are now extending the competition to another area of the country! This time we have available to one winner a free week working from a Retail Merchandising Unit (RMU) in the Arndale Centre, Morecambe.
Two new anchor tenants have recently moved into the Centre: Home Bargains opened their doors in May, with Burger King launching in August. The footfall has never looked healthier in the Centre, and the future is looking bright! The ever improving number of local visitors and diverse demographics make this the perfect place for a local start-up business to establish themselves in the retail heart of Morecambe.
An RMU typically offers a retailer an easy, professional standard of displaying their products, and is a low cost option which enables retailers to test their products in a retail environment and establish themselves in the community. It is usually the first step for traders before investing in a bespoke kiosk.
We are asking start-up businesses to submit a short application to demonstrate why they should win this fantastic opportunity. The RMU will be located centrally in the Centre, and will see a footfall of 62,000 in a week. Although there can only be one winner of the free week, we will consider strong applications for low rate rental trials of up to 4 weeks.
In order to apply, please provide the following information by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Full name
- Name of your business
- Short description of the products that you would like to sell
- Photos of the products (if you have any)
- When your business was set up
- Where your business is based
- Why you feel you deserve this opportunity
Applications are only open for 2 weeks – the final date to apply is Tuesday 4th October. Apply by this date and you could be in the Arndale Centre trading by October!
