Chester Chronicle by Rachel Flint
OUTRAGED traders are demanding action, claiming delays in council refurbishment work are pushing Chester’s historic market to the brink of closure.
Almost seven weeks ago, Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC) started work to transform the city’s bus exchange, on Princess Street, into a modern, clean and safe entrance to the city.
But now, after weeks of limited bus services outside the market entrance, traders say they are struggling to survive as elderly customers stay away from stalls as they are dropped off on the other side of the city – just a short walk from Iceland and Tesco.
Despite a recent boom in trade in the wake of the horse meat scandal, two stalls have been forced to close in the last fortnight, and many are struggling to survive as customers fail to walk the extra distance as the bad weather continues.
