Penkridge Market has launched an initiative today, to help new entrepreneurs and local businesses in 2014. They are offering any new or existing business in the Parish of Penkridge the opportunity to take a free stall on the Market, for one day, to help ‘test’ their business idea or to promote their existing business to new customers.


The Market, which attracts up to 5,000 people each Market day, draws people in from around the Region, including people from as far as Telford, Stoke and Walsall.  It is therefore a great place to ‘test’ a new business idea or to promote an existing business to new visitors to the area.


Matt Williams, Manager at Penkridge Market said:


“We realise that people visiting the Market may not be aware of the businesses in Penkridge itself, so we really want to help local businesses promote themselves to a new audience and hopefully gain new customers. We know how tough it is for any business during this difficult economic climate, but especially for anyone starting up a business. So we really hope the free stall offer will help attract and create some new exciting businesses.”


Matt is kindly offering local businesses a 10 foot pitch on the Market on either a Wednesday or a Saturday. Each business can use the pitch for one day, per year, on a first come first served basis.


The pitch can be used to sell your products or to simply promote your business by handing out leaflets, running a competition or raising money for charity. If you do not have the necessary equipment the Market will even provide a table.


Penkridge Market is situated in the centre of Penkridge, and is signposted off the A449 (postcode ST19 5AP). Admission and parking is free!


For further information and to book a stall on the Market please call Matt Williams on 01785 714221. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
