centre:mk Loves Local

centre:mk has announced that Love Local Hub, has opened its flagship pop-up space in centre:mk, the first in a national project created to help retail entrepreneurs and landlords across the UK.

Love Local Hub has launched in a 1,377 sq ft unit at 3 Sunset Walk, with the store serving as a stepping stone for new local retailers in the area at a key time of year.  Helping businesses test their products without the usual risk associated with renting, new brands can obtain space within the store and earn revenue, whilst being supported by Love Local Hub in all aspects of the business, from marketing to accounting. 

Local businesses currently showcased in the store include Planet Mermaid, Cake The Biscuit, Mamafillie, Finewood Studios, Piccalilli Lane, The English Rose and Truly Divine Event Décor.

Family owned and created by local entrepreneur and business owner, Samantha Poole, Love Local Hub has a magazine and print community of over 30,000.  Unlike other ‘pop-up’ retailers, the company combines a handheld service with a ‘bricks and mortar’ shopping experience for customers to enjoy.
