THE power of positivity was clearly evident following BBC Radio 4’s visit to Warrington Town Centre last Friday.
The You & Yours show put the spotlight on Warrington as a town with a higher than average number of retail and leisure properties within the town centre.
As a director of Warrington Chamber of Commerce I was invited onto the show alongside Michele Butterworth who owns and operates two small businesses in the town centre, Shelly’s Restaurant and Michele & Co. hairdressing salon.
Between us we turned what could have been a negative feature on Warrington into a positive one, highlighting all the great things going on in Warrington with the re-development of Time Square, the forthcoming new multi-screen cinema, a brand new Market and the opening of the Botanist Restaurant, along with all the great work being done with new developments aimed at encouraging people to live in the town centre.
While Michele explained times on the high street were tough she had to “crack on” and bake more cakes and good quality fresh food.
The result, brand new customers visiting Shelly’s and Warrington town centre from Altrincham and St Helens and enquiries from as far as Harrogate – all thanks to the power of positivity!
