TRADERS in Kidderminster town centre have raised concerns that market stalls are too close to the front of shops and it could be affecting their businesses.
Annabella Harvey-Lawrence, of Harveys the Jewellers, in the Bull Ring, said nobody thought of the “proper shops” on Thursdays and Saturdays, when market stalls fill Bull Ring, Vicar Street and High Street.
She said she hoped there would be an opportunity during the proposed town centre regeneration, which would see Crown House ripped down and the Bull Ring revamped, to relocate some of the stalls.
Wyre Forest District Council leader, Conservative councillorJohn Campion, said market stands and shops in the town needed “to be compatible”.
