Traders Comments - continued

The original trader's proposal for lock up shops on 25/10/2013 has gained considerable reaction so we have posted the comment again along with some of the responses from other traders.

25/10/2013 10:28:36 Lock-Up Shops "I am wondering who thinks that maybe certain rows of the market(THE PART THAT WILL STAY AS A MARKET) should have lock up facilities in order to try and help attract future quality tenants.Obviously the problem with attracting new tenants, is the enormous workload and expense with manually setting and packing up." 

25/10/2013 10:53:54 Lock Up Shops "Not sure about mass lock up shops but I have often thought that 5 or 6 containers suitably spaced out in an aisle would add variety and could accommodate those who don't want packing/unpacking. Probably higher rents though. "

25/10/2013 15:26:50 Lock-Up Shops "Totally agree. of course the market would ask for higher rents. I do believe it will happen with our blessing or not. From experience I do no think the council or board of directors will ever let us know their true intentions.... "

26/10/2013 16:31:20 Lock up Shops "All or nothing what benefit is two types of trading. Some outside some in lockups. May as well change Market name to Queen Victoria Factory Outlets this will onlyspeed up the endof the largest outdoor market in the southern Hemisphere" JR EShed

30/10/2013 14:57:30 Lock-Up Shops "Who wants the largest outdoor market title, if it looks like that, is outdated, traders unprofitable.Let's re-introduce the typewriter, donkeys with carts, and big brick phones. Seriously we are very outdated with our thinking. We need to create concepts to survive and combine them with the old..."
