We all know how hard it has been lately for retailers, and in particular our traditional high street shops. The recent recession, growth of supermarkets and the rise of internet retail has created holes in our high street. The time to stand together united as one has never been more important.
With the recent rise in Twitter's popularity in Warwickshire the unity is already there, so let's build on this to really go for this bid. Tonight, as I write this, the owners of Hatton and Harding are in the same room as Mary Portas. The Queen of Shops has just told them to get Warwick to bid for a chance to be a Portas Pilot.
Are we ready Warwick? Do we know what we want for Warwick? What will improve our town? What will stop the empty shops appearing?
WE NEED YOUR INPUT.
