The concessionary stall rate paid by traders at Market Drayton indoor market will continue until the end of March 2024, following negotiations between Shropshire Council and its managing agent LSD Promotions.

The concessionary rate of £10 per stall, per day, will be charged for indoor traders, and street traders will benefit from reduced fees too.

Dean Carroll, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for housing and assets, said:-

“We’re really pleased to extend this incentive to traders alongside our managing agent, LSD Promotions.

“The reduced rate has seen an increase of traders within the market, which is brilliant to see but also brilliant for those shopping at the market.

“Shropshire Council, LSD Promotions and Market Drayton Town Council are working with traders and visitors to hear their views on the market, to help shape the shopping and trading environment in the best way possible.”

Siobhan Noake, Marketing and PR ManagerLSD Promotions, said:-

“LSD Promotions are thrilled to announce that, after discussions with Shropshire Council, we’re extending the reduced stall rates at the Indoor Market Hall until March 2024.

“It’s a testament to our commitment to support our Market Drayton traders. The concessionary rate of £10 per stall for the Indoor Market Hall has helped encourage new businesses and visitors alike.

“We are delighted to further introduce a new reduced trader rent on the outdoor street market every Wednesday, starting from £17.50 per day, aiming to bolster our traders and foster a thriving market community.”

Last week, the indoor market put on a ‘spooktacular’ event, for those who wanted to get into the Halloween spirit.

Market Drayton indoor market is owned by Shropshire Council, and managed on its behalf by LSD Promotions.
