Proposed Spalding Smart Trader Scheme:
Shop and office fronts are the main advertising method for service businesses and retailers and should be eye-catching and convey the type of business or service being offered. These should however be in keeping with the historical heritage of the town and make a positive contribution to the character and trading success of an individual street or shopping area. This in turn will encourage greater footfall into the town and into individual shops and offices. In order to encourage shop and business owners to design and maintain their shop and office fronts in keeping with Spalding’s historical ‘street scene’, it has been decided to introduce the Spalding Smart Trader Scheme. It is intended that the scheme will go live on 1st May 2016 and details of how it will be conducted will be posted on the TCM’s website, once all stakeholders have agreed how it should be conducted.
