Take advantage of introductory trader rates at Morecambe’s Festival Market

Ever fancied running your own business but don’t know where to start? Why not take advantage of the special introductory trader rates on offer next month at Morecambe’s Festival Market.

This exciting opportunity awaits anyone wishing to expand or re-locate an existing business or those looking to start a new venture in a traditional, bustling and popular market. To qualify for the special rates on offer, which aim to attract new types of stalls to the market, traders should be offering commodities from the following list:

Branded sportswear, denim wear, ladies OS wear, foam products, gold and silver jewellery, health foods, cycles and accessories, fishmongers, cobblers, tableware, motor accessories, lighting, fashion footwear, toys, army surplus/camping, dry hairdresser, dressmaking services/fabric and decorating products (wallpaper/paint).

Morecambe Festival Market is a traditional covered market close to Morecambe Promenade offering over 100 stalls, shops and cafes. It is open on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays throughout the year.

During March there will also be a number of events to attract customers to the market including discounts for pensioners and a ‘Where’s Eric’ competition. An Easter Eggstravaganza is also planned for April.

Alan Greenhalgh, who has been a trader on the market since it opened in 1996, said: “The benefit of the market is that some people come to shop, others for a day out - but are impressed enough to come back and tell their friends. If you join the traders in the market you won’t make a million overnight, it takes time and commitment to get your rewards but I, like many others, have never regretted being here”.
