A trader is hoping to enlist the support of the boss of a major retail chain in a fight against proposals to move a historic Liverpool market.
Tom Finnegan, who runs a ladies fashion stall on the Great Homer Street market, says he wants to write to Matalan boss John Hargreaves after plans for to relocate the famous ‘Greatie’ market to a new £2.2m facility in Dryden Street were approved.
Mr Finnegan said: “The traders feel like we’re not being listened to at all. Our concerns have just been ignored.
“This is the best market in the area and the new site would be a lot smaller.
“John Hargreaves started on the market and I think if he knew what was happening he would be appalled.”
The market move is part of the £150m Project Jennifer regeneration programme, which aims to bring major investment centred around a new Sainsbury’s store.
