Over the past few weeks, betterRetailing has been out to visit leading independent retailers in store, producing videos that showcase the unique innovations that make them such successful businesses.

The video tours will be presented by the retailers themselves at the Local Shop Summit, which is to be held on 12 June at the ICC in Birmingham.

The Summit provides ideas and inspiration for independent retailers to take back to their own businesses and the videos are a new addition for 2012.

“Our audience of independent retailers will be inspired by what Paul, Bintesh and Roli have achieved. We know that retailers like seeing other shops to get ideas and by using video we can bring these fantastic shops to them at the Summit,” said Caroline Cronin, who is managing the event.

Each presentation will be followed by an open Q&A session and supplier talks (including Kraft, United Biscuits, Heineken, the NFRN, News International and Imperial Tobacco) who will also be sharing their tips for success under the theme for this year’s Summit – How to be Brilliant.
