A trader has suggested an alternative for the QVM (Queen Victoria Market) acronym.
Quality - there are thousands of examples in our market where quality is paramount and exceeds the standard retail offer.
Value - providing value is a key ingredient for QVM traders and one of the major draw cards for customers. Value implies a fair deal for everyone.
Meeting-place - QVM is all about people. A meeting place for different customer groups - locals, regional, interstate, and international. Different cultures - indigenous and international. Different age groups - from school children to seniors. A melting pot of personal relationships.
So when we think QVM we can also think Quality, Value and Meeting-place.
