Delight for West 12 initiative boosting local entrepreneurs
The Petit Miracles Hub in the West 12 Centre in Shepherd's Bush, a first of its kind initiative that helps local entrepreneurs grow their businesses, is celebrating winning a major national award.
Petit Miracles was named Short Term Retailer of the Year in the Sceptre Awards, which are run by trade magazine Shopping Centre and presented in a ceremony at London's Dorchester Hotel.
The Hub received this prestigious award for providing affordable space for local businesses to grow and showcase their products.
Located on the first floor of the shopping centre, it allows West 12 visitors the chance to access unique products from small independent local retailers.
The award-winning hub is the brain-child of the West 12 management team and Elisicia Moore, a passionate social entrepreneur who also owns the Hub’s sister store located at West 12, Petit Miracles Interiors.
A delighted Elisicia said about the award: " We are so passionate about what we do and it’s great to know that others recognise our work.
" Our aim is to provide an inspirational space where local businesses can learn and succeed independently, and we’ve had some great success stories. I’d encourage everyone local to West 12 to come along and see it for themselves. There are some fantastic products on offer that you certainly wouldn’t find anywhere else."
