Forum CentreSpace relaunch RMU competition for The Octagon, Burton upon Trent

May 30, 2017

Following the successful RMU (Retail Merchandising Unit) competition at Sovereign, Boscombe and Guildhall, Stafford, Forum CentreSpace have re-launched their Win-a-Free RMU initiative at The Octagon Shopping Centre in Burton upon Trent.


Keen to support local start-up businesses and entrepreneurs in Staffordshire, CentreSpace are offering the opportunity to win 1 full week, or 3 weekends completely rent free on an RMU (worth £250+vat). Products suited for the RMU include fashion accessories, bags, arts & crafts, beauty products, florist, and confectionary.


A Retail Merchandising Unit (RMU) typically offers traders a low-cost, flexible option which enables them to test their product in a retail environment and gain feedback from their target audience. This is usually the first step for a first-time trader in establishing their business before committing to a longer-term licence.
