TV show Retail Therapy wants to help local businesses

By Sarah Reilly

With the second series of Fergal Quinn’s Retail Therapy due to air in early this summer on RTE One, Amino Television are already looking for shops in Dublin for series 3.

Amino TV and RTÉ are looking for independent retailers for the third series of the popular retail advice programme, which will air in 2012.

This is a six part series in which retail innovator Feargal Quinn offers advice to retailers trying to prosper in the current economic climate.

The programme is looking to champion independent Irish retailers who represent individuality on the streets of Ireland’s towns and cities.

Emer Dunne from Amino said Feargal is passionate about helping businesses who are trying to challenge the multi-national corporations.

“Feargal will help these businesses to eradicate their weaknesses, exploit their strengths and identify a unique selling point which will make them stand out from the competition to attract customers to their door,” she said.

The first series was a success in terms of ratings, with the businesses reporting an improvement in both sales and staff morale as a result of their involvement in the programme.

The Liberty Florist is booming since taking part in the first series. Florist owner Kim Buckley said the process was “enjoyable but hectic” and still counts Mr. Quinn as a friend.

The series currently being recruited for will be on air at the beginning of 2012 and will be filmed over the next six months.

Amino are looking for all kinds of shops, so anyone who is interested should get in contact by emailing or by calling Emer on 01 6468240 for more information.
