Bromsgrove Market Large

The new operators of Bromsgrove market paid a visit to the town to meet traders and discuss plans for the future.

Directors from the Warwickshire-based company, who won the tender to operate the market from 16th February, hit the town with District Councillor Rita Dent on Friday February 26.

CJ’s Events will operate a three day general retail market and will also have the opportunity, in conjunction with Bromsgrove District Council and North Worcestershire Economic Development & Regeneration (NWEDR), to organise and operate additional events which can either run alongside or separate from the existing market. 

CJ’s Events Director Carol Young said: “It was wonderful to see the market, which already has a wide range of goods for sale, and the town centre bustling.

“We are passionate about the markets. Bromsgrove’s provides a brilliant base to build on. “The events area is an added bonus and we are looking forward to putting on events and speciality markets to attract shoppers from far and wide to boost the market’s and the town’s economy.”

Cllr Dent, whose portfolio covers the Town Centre and Economic Development, said: “Our events area is the cherry on the cake of our town centre regeneration project and I am excited at seeing it filled with extraordinary events and speciality stalls which will celebrate our local businesses.”

Bromsgrove market runs on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
