The New Moor Market

Recommended Posts

Yes it was called SevenStones. How's it going?

 

I thought the topic was about the Moor or the site the market is on? Nothing to do with sevenstones. It is different from Sevenstones because SW of their own volition and with their own money are redeveloping it.

 

No idea why youve bothered to write the stuff about the loan because its what ive already said.

 

I'm fully aware of all sorts of plans. Seven Stones was one that failed to get off the ground. You need to do some research on Bradford City Centre to realise that having an egg doesn't mean that next year you will have a chicken.

 

Well its going to be down to whether you believe SW or not. At the moment I have no reason not to believe them that the developments they say will go ahead will do so. Its a totally different prospect on a smaller scale than Sevenstones and different people. The cinema complex already has the major tenants signed up.

I mention Seven Stones because it is a very good illustration of how plans unravel. There are many reasons why developments don't get off the ground. It is often because circumstances change. A retailer may well look at something like the lack of footfall at the new market and re-think their business plan. Those deleloping SevenStones certainly did a re-think and invested in a project in Leeds instead.

Youll just have to wait and see like the rest of us. As I said.

It isnt sevenstones and involves different people on a much smaller scale.

The development is being funded by SW themselves as LL.

They already have the tenants signed up.

 

For those reasons the prospects look pretty good that it will be completed. How many people go to the Moor market is unlikely to effect them becayse they are destination reatilers in their own right.

I used to go the market three time a week and I never encountered these chavs and drunks that you mention.

 

Same here - been today in fact.

That is a good idea ,I will ask Ernest the furnace to unveil the name plaque,[another proper Sheffielder ]who would be wearing his white sweat muffler and flat eight panel cap with a woodbine tucked in the peak.

 

Ah, woodbines. What a smoke. I packed up smoking in 1972, when all the tasteless filter-tip things came in but you would have to breathe in the exhaust from a bus now to get anywhere near as good as a woodbine.

Anyway, to get back to the market, I like the Moor market as it is now but I liked Castle market/Sheaf market, a lot more.

Yes !as did thousands more who visited every day for the simple reason it was the traditional market as well as meeting area.

A tradition that has now been destroyed for ever by so called Town Planners.

I will get mi tin hat on;)

Hello everyone

 

Just to have my say, i go to the Market every Saturday and i see more and more stalls closing. I was talking to one of the stall holders last Saturday and he was at the old market for years, he is a small business and did very well at the old market, he was saying the rates and service chargers for the Market have now gone to the normal rate, as they were half price to begin with to encourage stall holder to go there, and loads of stall holders will now struggle because of the increases, and i will suspect more of them will go else where?

The Sheffield council are just killing the traders in the market.

 

It's a real shame.....

The developers and retailers will look at the performance of recently refurbished Atkinson's, the newly located TJ Hughes, and the established Debenhams and Sainsbury's before they even think about the market. Nothing is set in stone but with the construction office already established on a side street and two major tenants already signed up I'm struggling to think of a likely scenario where this doesn't get built.

It seems that market traders have taken legal advice regarding rents at the market. Certainly nothing is guaranteed round there.

TRADERS ARE seeking legal advice amid fears for the long-term future of a multi-million pound indoor market in a Yorkshire city.

 

Stall owners in the Moor in Sheffield are set to host crunch meetings with council leaders in the coming weeks regarding a number of new proposals designed to help struggling businesses.

It is now 8 weeks since I have been to new market. Used to go at least twice a week to old market.

When I met an old friend today I asked her if she has been lately. She said, nah can't be bothered to go to new one but she was going to old market frequently.

Sheffield new market is not competitive enough. For such a big city it offers oh so little variety in a market for too high a price in a location that does not conveniently connect with 50% of Sheffield's transport network.

I rather take the bus ride and go to chesterfield market. At least castle market somehow fulfilled our needs a bit but now we go elsewhere.

It looks and feels to me that someone has tried to make new market posh and upper class. England has upper, lower and middle class people. Take the market away from the lower class and try to give it to the upper ones has not worked and will be its biggest fail.

Are taking is different from have taken.

The stall holders dont want to pay any rent, admittedly some of them arent making enough to pay any rent. Does that mean the Council/ Council tax payers should subsidise them?

 

Similar problem in Castle market where for years a lot of the stalls only survived becayse they had big rent subsidies.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-16338193

 

It will be interesting to see what the legal advice will be about? Maybe its about the predicted footfall?

 

However they were still in a situation where castle market was going to close, so they would have had their teancies terminated. Similar situation in the new market if they dont like it they can quit. The Council will have to make the decision as to how long it will subsidise the market for? Rent free for another two years? That will just have them rescheduling the loan, which costs everyone more money.

 

IF after Primark moves in it doesnt show a significant upswing, then they will have to consider closing it if it shows no sign of paying its way. Its not hard to see why some of the stalls dont do good business when you look at whats on offer. They should sell what people want.
