AN EMPTY shop in a run-down market is being used to help traders in London's East End get through the recession.

The project is aimed at reducing the number of empty retail properties along Roman Road. Traders in the past have blamed the council for 'draconian' parking and trading restrictions they claim have driven shoppers away.
The shop at 430 Roman Road is to be used as a temporary 'business clinic' on July 8, 9 and 10 for traders, community projects, charities, arts groups and other organisations.
It is being staffed by volunteers from Ogilvy's including advertising, public relations and marketing strategists and planners. But traders have to book their 90-minute sessions by next Friday, June 11, which can be done online at Ogilvy's website.
