What is a Micro Shop? you may ask.
A number of our Crafters/Artists, have been growing their business through craft fairs/events and online sales, as well as having a small space within our Llandudno Shop – but are now ready to expand their business and their product lines.
Having your own shop can be very scary and expensive with rent/bills/council tax and of course having the time to commit to your own venture, Promise Art & Crafts offers a unique Micro Shop (within Promise) they are only 3m x 1.5m in size – but this is just the right size to take that next step.
We encourage them to take a more active role in running their business, to be in store at least 2 days a week to meet and greet their customers, whilst still having the support of the whole shop on the other days of the week, whilst they fulfill their regular work/home commitments.
We hope that eventually these Micro-Shops will be able to grow and start their own business premises.
Jon March is a good example of growing his business – he and his wife have a shop in Caernarfon – Well done!!!
