Free networking event to help independent retailers maximise Christmas trading

By Wakefield Bondholders 7th September 2016

For customers, it may seem like it starts earlier every year, but Christmas planning has already begun for Wakefield’s independent retailers – which is why Statement Retail is inviting retailers and shopkeepers to a free networking event to discuss and learn how to maximise Christmas trading and boost their orders during the festive season.

The event is on Thursday 15th September at 6pm, at Unity Works in Wakefield city centre.

With lots to do, and some pretty big competition, Wakefield’s independents need to work together to make the most of the holiday season.

A fantastic guest speaker will be at the event in the form of marketing consultant Clare-Marie Taylor, who can share with independents some of her expert insight into maximising trading this holiday season. Retailers will also learn how to use digital to maximise sales, footfall and cash-flow in a mobile-first society – which we’re seeing as increasingly important every year.

Networking and sharing ideas is essential for Wakefield’s flourishing independent retailers, and with such a wealth of growing small businesses and unique independents, it’s an exciting time to be a retailer in the town.
