Speakers to include: Gordon Reid – Head of Cityco, The City Centre Management Team David Mallon – Owner of Manchester fashion brand Ringspun and newly launched independent retail outlet The General Store on Deansgate John Robb – Writer and broadcaster Chair: Jonathan Schofield Editor Manchester Confidential The talk: Afflecks has had yet another closure threat, join us as we see if there is really anything that the council, local business, the media and the general public can really do to save one of Manchester’s most treasured icons… We will also look at the wider question facing the independent retailer sector as well as try and answer the question ‘will be any independent retailers at all in a few years to come?’… The following questions will be asked to our debate panel: Is it goodbye to Afflecks? What happened to the Corn Exchange and Coliseum? Are small businesses good for the community or not? Does the council value small businesses and if so is there anything they can do? Do the shoppers really value Independents? What can the people do to keep Afflecks?
