Big week for small business
26 February 2018
MORE than 30 local businesses will be spruced up, fine-tuned and revamped this week under the expert eye of retail marketer Carol Bagaric.
The visit is part of a joint initiative between Inverell Shire Council and Inverell Chamber of Commerce and brings Ms Bagaric to the doorstep of Inverell businesses.
Inverell Shire Council mayor Paul Harmon says it marks a big week for small business, with this morning’s Women in Business breakfast attracting close to forty participants and Ms Bagaric working throughout the week with businesses throughout the CBD.
“Council is delighted to have Carol return to Inverell for the second year in a row and we acknowledge the support of the NSW Government, which means we are able to offer these opportunities for free”.
Cr Harmon indicated Ms Bagaric will be working one-on-one with Inverell’s retail stores, hairdressers, art galleries, beauty therapists, butcheries, op shops and gyms during her week-long visit.
“Carol’s expertise means she is called upon to offer expertise to retailers right across the country”.
“Her work encompasses makeovers and updates for everything from shopping centres to office space and helps businesses learn how to make improvements without breaking the bank”.
Chamber of Commerce president Josh McPhee worked with Ms Bagaric in 2017 and says her expert insight provided invaluable help to his store.
“Carol understood that as small business owners there’s often not enough hours in the day, so she showed us tips and key areas of the shop we can focus on that will make the biggest difference to our bottom line”.
“It’s fantastic to see so many businesses take advantage of Carol’s visit to take their business to the next level”.
