Extra market days will be retained in Oldbury despite complaints from nearby businesses they cannot compete with stallholders.
Council chiefs in Sandwell extended market days in the town in May from Tuesdays and Fridays to include Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays as well.
Traders nearby, however, said they were not seeing the benefits of extra footfall, just struggling to compete as they had larger overheads and business rates to pay which were more expensive than fees for stalls.
Bosses at the council have however decided to take no action in response to a petition from those businesses, saying research has shown extra footfall helps regenerate high streets.
