ANGRY Wigan outdoor market traders are locked in a rent strike battle with the council.
The 30 stallholders have been withholding a third of their daily rate since Saturday in protest against their costs and the dwindling shopper footfall.
Their spokesman and long time outdoor market stallholder Joe Drachenberg said they have been pushed into the action by the continued failure of town hall chiefs to act on their concerns.
He warned that the six-day a week outdoor market is now “in intensive care”…and may be closed altogether within a year without some “life support.”
As the Evening Post went to press the market traders say that they have yet to receive any reaction or response from the council to the action.
