THINKING OF STARTING YOUR OWN BUSINESS?

Ready to run your own stall? …Well now you can test trade your business idea with a 6 month test trading scheme to help you get started.

It’s a great opportunity to new traders to set up shop within Glossop indoor market

The idea has come from High Peak Borough Council market superintendent Colin Deeley, who wants to fill the few remaining stalls, and increase the range of goods and services currently available to hundreds of Glossop shoppers.

Glossop is a well-liked market town and the indoor and outdoor market is popular with the local community and the many visitors who come to the picturesque Derbyshire town to shop.​

Commenting on the offer, Colin said, ‘it’s basically to give potential traders an opportunity to ‘try out’ being a stall holder for a period to see if they like it. The only condition is they must have liability insurance cover.’

Colin says there is plenty of scope for different businesses to move into the market and for them to do well.

He said: “I would like to see new retailers who specialise in Men’s clothing, Florists, Cosmetics, Candles and Waxes and Children’s clothing.

“I have ladies fashion shoes coming in, so as long as we do not duplicate what we have I am happy to consider it.”

Colin says there are a range of stall sizes on offer and that he is always willing to be ‘flexible’ ’ to anyone worried about committing themselves to a full year’s rental agreement.

“If after six or seven months someone comes to me and says it hasn’t worked out I can cancel, it is at my discretion,”

Smaller stalls are on offer at £150 a month,   big ones costing £250 and that includes everything.

Colin considers it good value for trading Thursday, Friday and Saturday every week in a popular community market that already has a diverse range of businesses.

If you’re interested in running a unit in the new indoor market, we’d really like to hear from you.
