Market Hall getting ready for business

Press release   •   Feb 24, 2014 17:42 GMT

The Council has a number of fixed units available ranging in size from 108 sq ft to 340 sq ft at outstanding prices – with rent deals available. In addition, the central market area will host daily ‘pop-up’ stalls to add variety and increase footfall and can be leased on a casual or non-lease arrangement.

Interest in the Market Hall has been excellent and the future is looking very positive. The Council has already signed Heads of Terms with eight traders – already a third of Market Hall’s capacity – with further discussions ongoing with potential new traders, two restaurateurs as well as some keen interest from previous tenants.

Councillor Liz Staples, Deputy Leader for Corporate Services added: “The Council has listened to comments and concerns raised by stall holders and outdoor market traders and taken on board
a lot of their suggestions.  An example of this is the Council revisiting rental charges for returning traders.

“We have a range of incentives on offer to help previous Market Hall traders and encourage new traders to the Market Hall.”

Julie Stanley, of Julie’s Design Jewellery on the High Street is moving back. She said: “I am thrilled to be moving back into the Market Hall. I am really excited by the designs and what the building has to offer. I’m looking forward to seeing regular customers – as well as some new ones.”

Councillor Liz Staples concluded: “My key message to traders – old and new – is we are open to discuss matters but, above all else, we want to see the Market Hall be as successful as possible.”

If you’re interested in trading at Burton Market Hall, the Council would love to hear from you.  Please call 01283 508772 or email markets@eaststaffsbc.gov.uk.
