Following the successful RMU (Retail Merchandising Unit) competition at Sovereign, Boscombe and The Octagon Burton upon Trent, Forum CentreSpace have re-launched their Win an RMU initiative at The Crossgates Shopping Centre in Leeds.
Keen to support local start-up businesses and entrepreneurs, CentreSpace are offering the opportunity for a retailer to showcase and sell their products from the kiosk unit along the mall completely free of charge for one week (worth £250 + vat).
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.
Products suitable for the RMU include fashion accessories, bags, art/crafts, flowers, speciality items and confectionary.
