M Shed Development – Slowly, Slowly

Traders are showing great interest in the new String Bean Alley development as it commenced trading this week. The general consensus seems to be that the new structures are a welcome and bright addition to the market landscape but much work needs to be done to translate into a meaningful retail destination.
Like other areas of the market, getting customers to embrace the new section is essential to its success. They desperately need a vibrancy and the crowds of customers that vibrancy attracts. It is early days, and no doubt management have much in mind to enhance the environment. Some more traders would be a good start.
