Struggling traders today warned they fear for the future of Sheffield’s new market – less than six months after the £18 million building opened.
Businesses have been forced to pull out and stallholders fear the end of the FreeBee bus in the city centre will accelerate the drop in footfall they say they have suffered.
Sheffield Council today said the new market was a success story but stressed it could not guarantee the success of every business. Food store 7 Days of Heath, Whitlocks Fish Bar and a cafe have all ceased trading since the market opened last November, despite stallholders enjoying a rent-free period for the first six months, with half-price charges for the remainder of the first year.
