Necho/DST Bedale window display workshops for traders
3:25pm Monday 21st October 2013 in News
TRADERS in Bedale are being offered a helping hand to bring bling to their shop windows in the run up to Christmas.
Workshops are being held in the town organised through Bedale and Villages Community Forum with Hambleton District council.
Forum chairman Yvonne Rose said: “Bedale has a great mix of independent shops with great ideas for Christmas, but retail is intensely competitive these days.
“Drawing customers into a shop with a festive window display to browse and chat to the shop owner beats the internet anyday. And you get to take your presents home - no waiting for delivery.”
The workshops are being run by Helen Goodwin who’s company Made You Look, has worked with small independent retailers as well as large national chains and garden centres.
Workshops normally cost £175 but traders will be charged £30 through the scheme. They are open to all retail businesses in the town which have displays and are being held at Bedale Hall on November 13 and 18 from 3.45- 8pm.
