What can you expect at the Hub?

The hubs provide a fun-filled immersive retail experience that put Aladdin’s cave to shame! A physical incubator, supporting retail entrepreneurs, offering an “instagramable wonderland” of products and services from small businesses in the local area. Supporting them from idea to reality and then get them ready for their own “bricks and mortar” store.

Don’t just ‘Pop In – Pop Up’ and Start-Up, we’re going places.

Lead by a team of business growth & Retail experts…

We are not simply renting you a space in a store, we are genuinely interested in your business and your 5 year business growth plan!

Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Cllr Robin Bradburn said:  

“The Love Local Hub is a fantastic opportunity for businesses to use a dedicated space while they get back on their own feet.  The pandemic has left a lot of people struggling and we know women and particularly those in the retail sector have had it the toughest.  I’d encourage businesses who think they could benefit to take up this offer so we can continue to grow our local economy.”


Co Founder, Samantha Poole said:

“As a single mum with a start-up and a scale up business I know first-hand how hard it is to set up a business with limited or no business support.  Returning to work was not an option for me due to high childcare fees and having two children who need extra care and support.  Hearing how the course and the Love Local Hub shop is helping our small businesses and women in business, is making me do a happy dance most days.  We all need a great mentor and if we want more than two out of ten small businesses to survive beyond three years, then we need to hold many more of our Business Bootcamp’s for our local small businesses.”


Innes Dalle Palle who is attending bootcamp sessions said:

“I have loved all the meeting’s so far – very informative, open for suggestions for your business (of any kind) and very collaborative.  I have much more confidence than before I started, since I feel surrounded by people who want to genuinely help and support my development.  Thank you for believing in us.”
