Wellington Market: On the Market

Wellington Market: On the Market

Wellington’s market has been operational since 1244, and has just gone on the market.

The sale is being handled by Lambert Smith Hampton, and the price is yet to be disclosed.

This comes around 12 months after the Market Company announced a cash injection and the future was looking far more positive.

Trading is unaffected by this, the market and stalls are all still open for business Tues, Thurs, Fri & Saturdays.

Would you like to see the council step in & take over the market?

    Will it end up as development land or will someone take it on and re-vamp it? Needs a lot of money spending!!

    i find it strange how its closed for 3 days one one of them being a Sunday. a day when traditionally a Sunday was the day families went to the markets so… how about this? close the market on a Sunday when most people are off work… makes great business sense. also, why close on the days that people get paid their tax credits? really can not understand this at all.

    If Telford and Wrekin could not run Oakengates market and Hadley market, how could they hope to run Wellington market?

    Shame our so called local newspaper, The Shropshire Star, does not appear to have picked up the latest news regarding Wellington Market.

    Let’s hope whoever buys it starts to run it in a proper manner. Too many chiefs and not enough indians. So depressing to see so many empty stalls – need more variety . So very sad.

    Hopefully new owners will pump new life into this market. Also support is needed for new and existing traders. Run by a skeleton management.

    I looked at taking a stall last year, and was surprised at the low weekly rent and non committal contract. I didn’t go ahead with it but not surprised it doesn’t make money. Other stall holders were open about which stalls had foot traffic and which didn’t.
    Was there a couple of days ago, and shocked at the number of empty stalls. Will be surprised if it stays as a market.
