THIS week, Lakeside Shopping Centre has launched an exciting new initiative to support small local businesses and ‘start-ups’, called Think Big, Shop Small.
The project will give local businesses the opportunity to showcase their products and services in Lakeside between 21 and 30 January – for free. With the prospect of reaching thousands of people and receiving the centre’s marketing and PR support, this could be the best start to the New Year for a small company trying to make it big.
Howard Oldstein, Centre Director at Lakeside said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for someone to gain huge exposure to potential customers and really give their brand a boost. If you’ve just started your new business or have a small company that could benefit from free publicity and expert support, please get in touch.”
Applicants must show their interest by emailing Victoria.email@example.com with full details including photos of products by Sunday 16 January. From then, the Lakeside team will invite a selection of businesses to come in and pitch their idea. Winners must be available to trade in line with the current centre opening hours.
