We get asked all the time – “Is now a good time to open a shop?”

There is never a bad time to open your shop! If you can keep abreast of new and emerging trends, you’ll be well on your way to success.

Amongst the ‘new normal’ for in-store shopping is an emphasis on creating smaller, more affordable sales outlets that can deliver on service rather than a warehouse full of goods. Leave that to Amazon.

These experience focused locations can showcase concepts, provide engagement opportunities, brilliant customer service and even, where appropriate, social occasions and events.

Why now is now a good time to open a shop

“Excellent couple of days, great team building exercise, with some valuable info for them (and myself) into the way we could work together. The TEGrocket game was a great insight into business”.
