Beating the Credit Crunch at The Market Hall
More people are turning to buying at The Market Hall in Shrewsbury as a way of beating the credit crunch.
Mel Ling, owner of Cook & Carve saw his customer numbers shoot up by 50 percent over the Christmas period and he says it's down to shoppers wanting to beat the national trend for spiralling food prices.
"This Christmas was fantastic, you wouldn't think we were in the middle of a recession," explained Mel.
William Dodd, owner of W D Butchers also saw his customer numbers up on last year.
"The credit crunch hasn't really affected us, we still have our regular customers coming to see us and the Christmas trading period was extremely busy," said William.
The Market Hall is perfectly placed to help businesses survive the economic downturn with a wide range of uses and a safe and secure environment.
"Trading at the Market Hall makes perfect sense for people wanting competitive rates especially at the moment with all the attention on the credit crunch,"said market administration manager, Kate Gittins.
"When you're just starting out, it's also a great way to keep your overheads down whilst having room to grow your business," she added.
