The West Sussex Retail Hub will launch on Monday 12th July. It is a joint initiative being delivered collectively with other Local Authorities in West Sussex to support independent retail businesses.
With high street businesses continuing to face increasing online competition and decreasing town centre footfall, exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic, the hub has been created to provide retail support to independent retail businesses across West Sussex. Training consultants Digital Islands have been commissioned to produce a programme of FREE online training modules and live Q&A sessions to help local retail businesses strengthen their skills and improve their knowledge of key topics.
The event will include an overview of the West Sussex Retail Hub and the opportunity to hear from each of the learning module presenters as well as special guest Mark Smith, Chief Operating Officer at Sweaty Betty. The founders of the business live in West Sussex, as does Mark. The business has come a long way in 20 years – from spotting a gap in the market to over 60 shops worldwide.
