Your Business in Focus

"Arrivederci Roma"

On Wednesday 23rd of March members of the Tredegar Business Community Tredegar Town Council and friends met in "Refresh Coffee Shop" to celebrate the 58 years of commitment and dedication of Luca De Roma.
Luca established his hairdressing business on High Street Tredegar in 1958. Over the years he has delivered a quality service to the population of Tredegar during a time which has seen major changes in the Tredegar business environment .
He will be missed by all and especially his regular customers.
The shop has been sold and a new enterprise will begin, which hopefully, will contribute as much to Tredegar life as Luca De Roma.

News and Views

A Breath of Fresh Mountain Air

The Mountain Air Inn recently became the latest local business to become a member of the Tredegar Business Forum, Smart Money Credit Union and the Tredegar Community Loyalty Card Scheme.

Stacy Irish (Landlady) believes that local enterprises working together to develop the local economy is the way forward and that the Community/Tredegar Loyalty Card will give customers an even bigger reason to shop locally all year round.

The Mountain Air will be offering its staff the credit union service to help them to save money regularly to lessen financial pressure.
All the staff liked the idea of it being there when they need it.

" We are pleased that so many of our employees wanted to join and would encourage any other employer to encourage their staff to join, it is simple to join and set up."

Low Cost Responsive Website

It is now a well known fact that over 80% of the buying public, do their initial product and retailer research on the internet.

If you do not have an effective internet presence you do not exist for 80% of your market.

Getting a domain name registered to your business, finding a reliable supplier to put your website together and making sure you having secure hosting and backup are all potential pitfalls for the inexperienced.

In order to take away these problems TBF has been in discussion with a local supplier who can offer entry level web-site development for £400 and hosting cost of £12/mth.
