Traders in a town centre road have said the removal of a market outside their shops has had a detrimental affect on business and that not enough is being done to promote the area.
A market was set up at the top end of Terminus Road by the seafront in August last year but moved 10 weeks later to outside Debenhams and TJ Hughes on a Wednesday. Many traders at the original location say they were promised it would return.
Jimmy Keeley, of Bobsters gift shop, said he had tried to set up a family fun event to promote the area but this had fallen on deaf ears, adding, “Where the pedestrian area stops by TJ Hughes that’s like a barrier to the town. With the market where it is now people come down, see the market and don’t think there’s anything else to offer.”
