Burton Mail by HELEN KREFT
AN optician in Burton which will soon be neighbours with the town’s outdoor market said it was worried new stalls would damage the business.
Lancaster & Thorpe, in Station Street, said three posts had been sunk into the ground right outside the store, which staff believe will be for three new stalls — thus blocking the public’s view of its frontage.
However, East Staffordshire Borough Council claimed that existing businesses would benefit from the increased footfall provided by the market.
Sue Eyre, manager at the Burton branch of Lancaster & Thorpe, said she had a lot of questions and concerns over the borough council’s decision to move the outdoor market from Market Place to Station Street.
