About Us

The York Retail Forum exists to promote the retail trade within central York. We meet three times per year, and hold a number of other events. We meet in January, April, July & October.

Our new vision for retail in York is looking for people to pitch their big idea to our next event in Spring 2018. Are you looking to open a retail space in York? Do you currently have a retail space in York, but have big growth plans? Either way, we want to hear from you – the winning pitchers will receive funds to help turn their big ideas into reality!

To find out more please contact the Secretary of the York Retail Forum on secretary@yorkretailforum.co.uk

We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards
Phil Pinder
