Back to Business Week this year will bring a series of free merchandising workshops to Parkes at the end of the month. Parkes Shire Council, in association with the Department of Industry, will welcome visual merchandising specialist, Carol Bagaric from AUSVM to host the Retail Revamp program.
Back to Business Week is an initiative that celebrates small to medium business- es and promotes and supports the critical role they play in local communities. Parkes Shire Council’s Economic and Business Development Manager, Anna Wyllie said: “The program would inspire and improve the way you create and deliver professional retail presentations.”
The program starts with an evening work- shop on Monday, 27th February, focusing on the theory of visual display followed by a dusk retail tour. The series continues with three separate hands-on workshops on Tuesday, 28th February and Wednesday, 1st March when Carol will visit selected stores to put theory into practice.
