Would you like to appear on national TV? Three production companies are seeking retailers to participate in forthcoming TV projects, according to the British Independent Retailers Association (bira).
A 10-part show proposed for the BBC will focus on the challenges faced by small to medium businesses in the UK in a tough economic climate, and will offer help on how to cope and prosper.
The producers are looking for a smallish family-run independent retail shop that may be successful in terms of quality but is struggling with marketing and branding. The premise of the show is how independently-run companies in the UK could change their marketing strategy to generate more footfall and cope in the current climate.
The second opportunity is for a hardware shop to be the star of a Channel 4 series about DIYers. The focus is less on the shop and more on the customers – but the producers are looking for a sizeable hardware outfit with a good range of strong departments and some real characters at the heart of the business.
The details of a third project, for BBC2, is still under wraps – but it is also about presenting a positive view of independent retailers.
