One of our passions is business growth and we pride ourselves on the support, training and guidance we give to independent businesses when they are embarking on their first retail or trade show opportunity. We regularly run workshops and training for independent businesses focusing on everything from digital marketing to pricing. 

The Marches Growth Hub approached us in 2018 to support them with a pop up retail opportunity for new businesses. As part of this support, we provided a full day’s training in retail for the 8 businesses who had been successfully selected from the many who applied for this fantastic opportunity at the Darwin Shopping Centre in Shrewsbury. 

Buy From supported the delivery of the project by facilitating a workshop which took the businesses through the fundamentals of setting up a retail unit within the shopping centre. Buy From focussed on key elements including: Marketing and developing social media strategy, communicating brand to customers, visual merchandising, customer service and pricing product. This allowed the businesses to move from being creators and makers to merchandising and retailing their product in a professional environment. Our experience of working with Buy From was extremely positive. I would not hesitate in recommending them to you to support the delivery of your project.
