POPULAR fishmonger Malcolm Smith says he is considering quitting Eastgate Market in favour of a market which has headhunted him – as the row deepens over whether the market should move or stay.
Eastgate Market traders are being presented with three alternative locations as The Eastgate shopping centre bosses push ahead with a plan to replace them with a TK Maxx store.
But traders are adamant that they do not want to be moved upstairs as they feel it will kill their businesses.
But Mr Smith, who has a veteran of the market, having run a stall there for 35 years, has been approached by a market in Pontypool, Wales, to jump ship. He has been offered rent half the price of Gloucester in a market that has just enjoyed a £2.5million revamp
