Regular readers will be aware that for the last two years, Barry and I have had the privilege of working for Calendar Club UK. We’re very much hoping to be doing the same thing this year, returning to Lichfield selling a wide range of calendars, diaries, annuals, and mugs.
At the time of publishing, we’re waiting to hear if/where we have a store. Sadly it’s not looking like it’ll be at the Three Spires Centre. Our previous store has recently been taken by the Lichfield Cathedral shop. However we’ve seen a couple of excellently located vacant stores in the centre and we’re crossing all appendages we’ll be setting up in one of those shops in the next few weeks, ready to sell the best selection of calendars in the known universe!
In the meantime, in the area of our Territorial Manager (TM), there’s a few places with opportunities for new operators to apply for. You can read more about our experiences in a previous blog post.
Maybe you travel the cut and could do with a winter job to top up your income? Could be you’re ‘between’ jobs, and looking for something to tide you over? Or, like us, roving traders who have sparse chance for opening out of the main trading season.
Shops and mall units are already starting to open. The Bull Ring and Mansfield started the season off, opening on 24th September. Nottingham opened yesterday. This year it’s hoped to have 280 stores or mall units across the UK.
Steve, our TM, is looking for operators in the following areas:
- Merry Hill (lower mall)
- And one more – we’re keeping that to ourselves for now, until our Lichfield store is confirmed! If we don’t get Lichfield we want this one …
