Over the Christmas period, businesses can have a pop-up stall at St John’s Market in Scunthorpe on its ‘Christmas Street’ until the end of January 2020.
The stalls are available on short term lets on a month by month basis from now until the end of January, with the opportunity to extend to a longer term licence.
The ‘Christmas Street’ will complement what is already available at St John’s Market – unique gift ideas that you can’t find on the High Street.
Whether its arts and crafts, clothing, food, gifts, footwear or an activity provider, businesses are encouraged to take up a pop-up stall and take advantage of the Christmas footfall.
Businesses interested in having a pop-stall should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stall prices start from £52 a week for retail and £89 a week for food court units. With unit sizes ranging from 9m2 to 15m2.
Cllr Richard Hannigan, cabinet member for place shaping at North Lincolnshire Council, said:
“This is a brilliant opportunity for a retail or food business to ‘try before they buy’ at St John’s Market. Located right next to the bus station and multi-storey car park, the market is the ideal location for businesses. If St John’s Market is the right fit, there will be the chance for businesses to open up a permanent stall.
“We are looking for a whole range of businesses to take up a pop-up stall to complement the existing offer. The market will have a real festive feel, which will enhance the whole shopping experience. If you’re interested in taking up a stall, get in touch with the market team.
“The market is going from strength to strength since it opened in March this year. More recently we have had new stalls open – helping put St John’s Market on the map as a prime shopping destination in North Lincolnshire.”
In the run up to Christmas, St John’s Market will have extended opening hours including:
- Sunday 22 December from 10am to 4pm
- Monday 23 December from 7.30am to 5pm
- Christmas Eve from 7am to 3pm
It will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
