Market Trader July 6th, 2018 - In This Week

London Chat - Another North End Road Special

You have to hand it to Hammersmith & Fulham. After what seemed like an age of complacency; over the past few years they’ve really got behind North End Road and the latest in the series of high profile specials was what was promoted as a ‘sizzling summer market’ at the West Brompton gaff on 30th June.

Securing future for historic market

The installation of a mezzanine floor and the creation of more open space are just two of the ideas that could be the key to transforming a historic Scottish market, local media has reported.

4

Know your product

With the holiday season well and truly upon us, we thought the time was right to take another look at this indispensable product, and ask: how much do you really know about the humble bag?

See page 14 for more information.


5

Trading restrictions could hit stallholders

Planned restrictions on the number of days a North Yorkshire market can operate have left traders shocked and annoyed.

Free parking plan welcomed

Proposals to introduce two hours of free parking in a County Durham town have been welcomed by shoppers, traders and politicians, but there are warnings that more needs to be done to help the “struggling” town centre.

Pitching to win

I don’t suppose many people remember these days the glory years of this paper’s Pitcher of the Year Contest. But the idea has had a little revival at New Covent Garden Market in 2018. The idea was simple. Offer a prize of a year’s free rent on a unit in the new Food Exchange; invite entries from start up food or food connected businesses; whittle them down to a shortlist and then get the finalists to sing for their supper at an event where the winner would be decided.

Where did that four years go then?

Well, the big Royal Wedding has been and gone, and hopefully the nation’s traders shifted their fair share of marriage memorabilia and sovereign-related souvenirs over the course of that gloriously sunny weekend.

Banking on form?

Noel Edmonds’ 67p (the price of one Lloyds share at the time) haranguing of the visibly uncomfortable Chairman Norman Blackwell at Lloyds Banks’ AGM (catch it on YouTube) was knock-about fun – while it lasted. Certainly His Lordship looked uncomfortable and many of the disc-spinners shafts were applauded. But it was and will be a nine-day wonder. After all over the past few years bankers have descended in public opinion to such an extent that many would view the average loan-shark with a rather more benign eye. The affairs at HBOS’s Reading office over a decade ago, (and let it be said before Lloyds were leaned on to rescue this woebegone basket case), scandalous as they were will scarcely raise an eyebrow.

Brits abroad are missing a trick

As this year’s summer holiday season gathers pace, new research from Learn to Trade reveals that over half of Brits leave exchanging money until the very last minute – or even till they’re abroad already.

Please look at page 19 for the full details.

More government support for independent retailers called for

Awareness of smaller retailers is on the up, but winning the high street battle will come down to a niche product offering and personalised shopping experience, according to a leading technology provider.

Look at page 20 for the rest of the story.

Store sales make a comeback in May

According to the British Retail Consortium – KPMG Retail Sales Monitor, UK retail sales in May increased by 2.8 percent on a like-for-like basis from May 2017, when they had decreased by 0.4 percent from the preceding year.
