A Bristol entrepreneur is giving black-owned businesses a boost by showcasing their products and services in a pop-up shop in the Galleries in Broadmead.
Latoya Adlam successfully grew her ethical beauty business, Kitchen Cosmetics, thanks to free support from the West of England Combined Authority and is now using her experience to support others.
“We have some incredible black-owned businesses across the West of England, but they need a strong platform to promote their products and services. That’s why I came up with the idea of the pop-up shop. We’ve been open a month now, turnover has been great, and the feedback has been fantastic.”
“Through the pop-shop we can raise awareness of the free business support that’s available and encourage others to make the journey I have and maximise their businesses potential.”
The pop-up shop is open until January to make the most of the Christmas shopping period. A percentage from every purchase will be donated to three Bristol based non-profit charities.
