Vital Streetlife assistance for Shepparton’s retailers

Thursday, 17 July 2014

Maude Street Mall in Shepparton is set to see a boost in trade with retailers better equipped to manage and present their shops through a $19,000 Streetlife grant provided by the Victorian Coalition Government.

Minister for Small Business Russell Northe made the announcement today at the Maude St Mall alongside Nationals candidate for Shepparton Greg Barr and Member for Shepparton Jeanette Powell.

Mr Barr said the Streetlife grant would help Greater Shepparton City Council develop a program to advance the customer service and business branding talents of its local retailers.

"The Get Your Business Booming project will give retailers access to workshops and personalised consultations where they will develop a thorough visual merchandising plan," Mr Barr said.

"The Streetlife initiative supports local shopping precincts by funding councils and trader associations to work directly with local retailers, helping them increase productivity and build more sustainable and competitive businesses.

"In Shepparton, this will help ensure a more supportive, collaborative business community and lead to a spike in customers, sales and employment in the central business district."

Mr Northe said the Coalition Government is committed to small business and the Streetlife program particularly aims to increase skills and boost trade for local businesses across Victoria.

"There are more than half a million actively trading small businesses in Victoria, making up almost half of all private sector jobs and contributing around 30 per cent to the State's economy," Mr Northe said.

"There are 77,000 more jobs in small businesses across Victoria than there were in 2010. That's because we are building a more productive Victoria by providing the economic conditions for small businesses to grow and create jobs."
