As part of its new ‘We Love Local’ scheme, tradespeople could obtain a pop-up shop space in The Galleria at no cost.

The outlet centre in Comet Way boasts a large amount of promotional space.

The Galleria’s management team is inviting food and beverage businesses to apply for the chance to sell their produce in these spaces free of charge.

Ellenor Penny, marketing manager at The Galleria, said: “We are always thinking about ways to provide our customers with the best possible service and we believe our ‘We Love Local’ initiative will be a fun and interesting way to do this.

“It will offer our shoppers an even more diverse experience and will give local businesses the chance to reach more people with their products.

“We’re looking forward to seeing who applies to take part and to building strong community ties with local operators.”

All of those taking part will benefit from The Galleria’s footfall, as well as promotion via the centre’s social media channels, which reach up to 18,000 followers.

If successful, there is also the potential to develop a long-term partnership with regular slots to set up shop in The Galleria.

• Anyone interested in applying to take part in The Galleria’s ‘We Love Local’ initiative can find out more details at https://thegalleria.co.uk/we-love-local

Agreements will be subject to the requirements set out in the guide document on the website.
