08/05/2017 09:56:13 QVM Retail Plan "A retail plan needs solid compliant traders who grow, promote, support and can plan ahead for a commercially viable future. Traders need security with  leases or licences with terms with options say - 5yrs + 5yrs + 5 yrs. ALL TRADERS SHOULD BE PUTTING THIS AT THE TOP OF THEIR RETAIL PLANS !!!" Proud QVM trader !
No need to shout "Proud QVM trader". We get it. Security is an important part of tackling the future with confidence. Thanks for your input. - Ed.
