It may seem like a long way away but the London Olympics Games will be with us in just over two years and it is time to start thinking about the best ways to take advantage of the many retail opportunities associated with the Olympics Games.
We will be providing regular comments over the next two years, giving advice and suggestions for retailers, independent traders and visitors looking to get the best retail experience from the Olympics in London.
The Olympic retail experience will not just be the massive Westfield development located at the heart of the Olympic complex, although it will play a big part and it certainly worth having a look at the scheme which is set to open in 2011.
Visitors will be located across London and the wider South East. Tourism throughout the UK will be boosted as people from across the globe take the opportunity to see the country, its culture and its history. Everyone should be making the most of this opportunity.
One place you will certainly be hearing more about in the run up to the Olympics will be Much Wenlock in Shropshire. Some claim this to be the birthplace of the modern Olympics.
