Save The High Street, an industry-wide initiative to support and empower local shopkeepers nationwide, is calling on independent retailers to join its advisory board.
The Retailer Advisory Board has been formed to identify and vet opportunities, recommendations and challenges, to help design the ideal path ahead for future high street retailing in the UK.
SaveTheHighStreet.org community director Lyndsay King said: “We heard from shopkeepers nationwide that they want to hear from other retailers about ‘what works’.
“All shops can join SaveTheHighStreet.org for free, and shopkeepers who also join the Retailer Advisory Board take a stand for their communities and the future of local retailing nationwide.”
Retailer Advisory Board member Isaac Lilos added: “With challenging high street conditions and shifts in consumer buying patterns – independent businesses need to effectively collaborate and adopt the latest technology to ensure survival, allow growth and competition with bigger businesses.
“I believe that SaveTheHighStreet.org could play a leading role in building the framework for collaboration enabling, promoting, supporting and empowering small businesses everywhere to achieve success.”
