Retail, Historic Towns and the Visitor Economy

We’ve been drawing on our experience looking at the role of independent shopping in destinations and working in historic towns to inform a talkĀ atĀ the Historic Towns Forum eventĀ in Lancashire.Ā Ā Ā The presentationĀ challenged towns to thinkĀ about what the visitor economy could offer the retailer, what makesĀ a shopping experience specialĀ for visitors and the value of creative small interventionsĀ as one way toĀ do things differently.
