If you didn’t already know, Sainsbury’s are opening their doors on Bristol’s popular Gloucester Road. Love them or hate them, it has to be said the new store is vibrant addition and certainly will draw more people than the sorry empty shell which was the old Threshers Store. We will watch in anticipation to see how locals receive them and we will keep you posted. Sainsbury’s are only one of the new addition to our street. Reason Interiors and I love my PC are another two welcome traders.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Traders meeting last night at the Royal Oak. For those that could not attend I will attempt to recap in brief.
Gloucester Rd Website Update
We updated people on the progress of this website and that was that we have now been listed on google for three month and are starting to see a significant increase in visitors, which is good news for us and for the Traders on Gloucester Road. We also covered quite a few initiative that you as Traders would like to see and we will implement many of those over the next week. I will keep you posted on the developments via this Traders news section, so if you are interested in Traders News please bookmark this page.
Christmas Lights on Gloucester Road
The Christmas Lights were a great success last year and we really want to improve on that again. We will be posting full details of costs and who to contact later today.
There was a discussion to promote the idea of Indepenent’s Day for the Gloucester Road. This would be a day each year promoting all the Independent Traders. It would involve shops up and down the Gloucester Road individually and collectively celebrating by putting on events or demonstrations, in fact anything to make the day memorable and involve members of the public. It is obviously a huge and ambitious task and is being planned for the Summer of 2011. We will keep you posted.
Other topics briefly touched on
That is a very brief overview and I will update this with some more detail soon. Thanks for taking the time to read my article and happy trading.
Gloucester Road is one of Britain’s largest collection of Independent Traders in the UK. That means a wealth of choice and diversity for the people of the community.
If you are one of those Independent Traders or a member of the public who have a favorite shop, we encourage you to see if you are listed.
If your business are listed, then great. If you are not and your business is based on the Gloucester Road all you have to do is submit your free listing here.
Are you pouring money down the drain? Do you recognise yourself in this video?
Businesses in the UK spend in the region of £1.6 billion on energy each year of which 20% is wasted due to poor practices. Amongst them is shops leaving their doors open to the elements even when heating is on. Not only is this draining profits it is also harming the environment and irritating customers! The Close the Door Campaign, already successful in Cambridge and elsewhere, is taking root in Bristol and will be launched in November.
Gloucester Road is already famous across the city as a green model of excellence for local shopping and for its stand against plastic bags. Now we want you to join the campaign and make it a flagship area for energy conservation.
Many of you will already keep your doors shut. We would like you to support the campaign and display the decal (illustrated on separate email) on your door. Some of you may keep the door open because your goods are highly perishable and you don’t use heating. That’s no problem. But there are others of you who keep the door open because it’s HQ policy or because you or they believe that it’s good for trade.
These and other arguments in favour of open doors are dealt with on our website at http://www.closethedoor.org.uk/content/view/14/28/ Most importantly there is no evidence that closing the door harms takings and indeed a major high street store’s research showed that it improved them! So think about it – the waste, loss of profits, your image as responsible traders – and the CO2 you are creating. Change your policy or encourage HQ to change theirs.
Before long, someone from Close the Door will call on you. Meanwhile, if you would like to get ahead, email us at email@example.com and ask to join.
Help make Gloucester Road even greener and let’s make Bristol the UK’s Green Capital!
