We’re proud to say we helped and mentored Matt Lewis in his endeavours to open his first retail outlet. Matt was one of several dozen young people who approach us each year for a placement. We only accept a few and Matt stood out as our MD Andy says: ‘At the age of 18 he had already identified a gap in the market and created his own website. We helped him fine tune his business plan, gave him a grounding in digital by placing him in our digital team, got our creative team to work on branding with him, the PR team to work on a press release and I made enquiries with retail contacts which led to this first opening in a major shopping centre’.
Matt’s business is now called Vercity, and it opens Mon 18th July in Harrogate’s prestigious Victoria Shopping Centre. Go and support this outstanding young entrepreneur and see his truly awesome range of men’s accessories or buy online at www.vercity.co.uk
