Ellandi and Workman go back to their Indi’s Floors
Posted by Ellandi on 7th Dec 2016
Community shopping centre investor Ellandi & property manager Workman went back to the shop floor to help their Independent retailers through the busy Christmas period.
Mark Robinson, Property Director at Ellandi said “2016 has been all about independents retailers at Ellandi and we wanted to build on our #Indi2016 campaign where we have promoted a new independent trader every day. Back to the floor allows us to work alongside and listen to our occupiers; it was doubly appropriate being the day before Small Business Saturday.”
The day saw 30 property professionals work in 30 independent shops, providing an extra pair of hands and gaining an insight into how independent retailers trade during the festive period.
Ellandi’s Managing Director, Morgan Garfield added “I was placed in Precious Thoughts at the Mercury Mall in Romford. Alongside pricing up cards and working behind the counter, I also had a good chat with the owner and as an outcome, we will be working closely with the retailer to provide additional support.”
The campaign has been fully supported by Revo, with Chief Executive Edward Cooke commenting “Ellandi’s campaign supporting independent retailers is wonderful and we’re delighted to help. This campaign really shows how the retail property sector supports local entrepreneurs, the risk-takers who fuel new ideas. Also, crucially, these new businesses are the lifeblood of retail and lead to vibrant places to live, work and shop.”
