Guernsey teams use OSA's pop up shop

Guernsey 17th February 2019

OSA are kindly allowing the Guernsey teams to use their pop up shop during half term.  Teams from St Sampsons, La Mare and Grammar are getting the keys to the OSA pop up shop and running their businesses from the shop during half term. 

Lydia Chambers, coordinator of the Challenge said "Running your own shop is hard work and a big responsibility and being able to use OSA's pop up shop gives the teams a taster of the retail sector.  We are extremely grateful to OSA for giving our students this opportunity."

Belinda Windsor from OSA added "The OSA Pop Up Shop team are delighted to be hosting students from St Sampsons, La Mare de Carteret and the Guernsey Grammar School this week. Aged from 11 to 16 it is very impressive to see how naturally they can set up shop on their own, sell the goods, communicate with customers, manage money and promote their business ideas using various platforms. Our future business leaders on Smith Street! Well done to all - the sponsors, mentors and students."
