Entrepreneurs and traders who cannot afford rents and rates to open a shop in Wokingham believe the town’s indoor market is the answer.
The indoor market opened its doors for the first time on Saturday in a bid to bring more shoppers to the town.
Around 20 stallholders, selling fabrics, jewellery, cosmetics and gifts, almost filled the former Peacocks store in Market Place.
Sarah Pinnell, 27, of Rose Street, who was selling fabrics, said: “Traders like me would love a shop in the town but we can’t afford them. I’m going to be here the full three months of the trial and hopefully it will then become permanent.”
She added: “I think this market is going to do great. It’s good to see most of the stalls are taken.”
