Three months after relocating to their new premises in the newly completed building that represents phase 2 of the redevelopment of NCGM, we have been asking traders how the facilities have been treating them so far. Here are the thoughts of Franco Antonucci, Euro Harvest, pictured second left.
“We’ve got almost double the space and we’ve found that has made everything more efficient,” said Franco. “The business has stayed more or less the same, we don’t really do anything differently. Because it’s been Christmas, my customers have been very busy, so most of them have not been here, but we’re looking forward to showing them our new premises.”
Relocation can be an unsettling time for a business, but Franco says there were no such thoughts at Euro Harvest. “Before we moved, there were no fears - we were excited,” he said. “It was pretty tight where we were before and we knew that with additional space, we’d be able to work better. We knew what we were going to get and what we had to do and the people who helped us plan and move all did a very good job. Good planning was really important.”
