New Stalls at Darwen Market

31st July 2012

Categories: Town Centre News

Business is booming at Darwen Market, with three new stalls having recently opened up for business.

The first of those, the Train Stall, has been open for six months selling model trains and accessories.

Owner Brian Tattersall is really happy with how business has been and is even planning to expand soon.

The 44 year old said: “The trains and dye cast models have been doing well so I am looking to expand onto another stall to increase the size of the business in the market. The people that come to the stall are purchasing enough quality trains to keep the stall running.”

Elsewhere, the Home Brew store - run by James Quayle, 46, and Katy Quayle, 32 - sells home brewing equipment.

The stall has been open for a month and a half and Katy is very pleased with how business has been so far.

She said: “It’s getting busy now as news is definitely spreading round, people are very happy they now have a home brew shop in Darwen rather than having to get their equipment from elsewhere.”

Finally Jackie Menzies has moved her stall, ‘Stich’ into the market.

Jackie has been working on clothes repairing for 20 years for friends and family, she is hoping that this new store will bring even more people into Darwen Market.

She said: “It is fantastic to be able to follow my dream of working for myself and being able to do something that I fully enjoy doing, I have only been on the market for a short time and already the business is picking up and people seem to love coming down to the stall.”

Councillor Eileen Entwistle, Lead Member for Regeneration, said: “It’s fantastic that Darwen Market is doing so well at the moment. People can explore the town centre and easily see how much their market has to offer. It is also brilliant to see even more people setting up business for themselves and selling such a broad range of products and services from the market.”
