Lakeside launches small business initiative

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 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.
