Hi, I am looking to raise finance to start a new business in the little town of Ormskirk in West Lancashire UK. I would love to rent a shop and employ local people but to begin with the rates are far to high for me to afford, so I need to start up an online business to fund things.
Online, the Herbarium ~ the name for it :-) will sell specialist cooking herbs which cannot be bought in supermarkets, hebal remedies and a little bit of magic.
If I can expand it, I would love to open a town centre shop offering all of the products plus a little chill area with my friend the rock star singing a bit of soul and my other friend the lovely Elaine the Massage Lady offering a little bit of TLC to the passing trade of our town.
As with a lot of small towns - Ormskirk is pretty dead now which is such a shame - but I believe a different type of store / shop / experience could really revitalise us. This could really work as a commercial enterprise as we have become a University Town and have lots of students which I am sure would love all of the happy hippy things I wish to sell and the peaceful experience I wish our townspeople visitors and shoppers would love to have.
Many many thanks,
