The annual Retail Factor competition, run by The Mall has opened up for entries, giving small businesses the chance to trade for three weeks within one of the company’s malls for free.
The competition is open to any business that doesn’t currently have any permanent premises, and winners will receive a space to trade for three weeks in one of the five Malls, which are based in Blackburn, Camberley, Luton, Maidstone, Walthamstow and Wood Green.
The space in one of the malls will give you access to thousands of potential shoppers during the three weeks, and will give you a great chance to test your business idea or get exposure for your services.
In addition to the space, you’ll also win £1,000 in cash towards stock, mentorship from industry experts and a place on the Oxford Summer School Academy Course. The competition is open from now until 23 February, with winners trading between 26 March and 30 June 2014.
To enter, visit The Mall’s website which has further information on the terms and conditions of the competition.
