Open discussion on how businesses in Ballinasloe are adapting to COVID 19 - Shared screen with speaker view
Raj Lyons Chohan
Attended one, was on other few webinars with EI and some excellent ones with Reuters
Thanks Andrea – good insight. Do you think that retailers in town could work together with JOINT promotions to attract consumers and increasing the ASP. For example, buy a product from you and a bunch of flowers from a local florist at one price? OR a product from you and treatment from a local hairdresser etc. If this worked, we could roll out to other retailers. Thoughts from you and everyone on the call?
Can shopballinasloe.ie facilitate combo offers from multiple sellers? Allow for a consistent approach from retailers and take the hassle out of figuring it out
each retailer can opt in to the discount model, whatever that might be
The key is to get retailers talking to each other and coming up with bundles
Joe before the end of the meeting can you throw out a request:
might I suggest a gift card / voucher for the whole town
Re Shipping, DPD is based in Athlone. Negotiate one rate for all retailers?
Joe you might circulate this question before the end of the meeting:Over the coming weeks steps will be taken to re-open our economy. However we are all conscious of the fact that it won’t simply be a case of ‘business as usual’ and that we will have to find new ways of doing things.Social distancing will remain a feature of our lives for some time and this will no doubt present challenges which are unique to each industry, profession and business.I believe by working together we can find solutions and supports that will allow businesses to find a new way of operating and allow us to restart our economy.I am also interested in hearing about the challenges implementing social distancing would create for you: will it have financial implications, implications for your premises etc.I would be grateful if you could send your suggestions to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If anyone wants a copy of the spreadsheet Seamus was talking about just email email@example.com

items can be left into the pet shop if it suits people
has anyone applied for Business Continuity Voucher and has anyone any feedback on process?
Yes. Was on webinar with Network Galway and LEO last night. B Fox over 120 applications in as of yesterday and 88 had been gone through. I applied Monday and I'm hopeful I will know more by Friday.
I applied and received confirmation within 48 hrs, they appointed a mentor but I sought permission to use someone who was already very familiar with my business type
Totally agree with Denis..keep the social distancing but allow those who can conduct their business a permit to go ahead
Can you give us your e mail address Denis ?
