In The Market For A Sturdy Tent

The tented market is to reopen, after several failed attempts at replacement with designs that were very average to say the least.

Previous tenants have voiced concern at the increase in the rental rates compared to what they were paying before the market was closed in late 2007. However as Simon Ormrod (from the management company in charge of the market, Keningtons) says in the Adver article, "we don't just want 50 mobile phone shops." The great thing is, not only is Mr Ormrod talking about a better range of shops, but he's in a position to actually influence that, to a degree.

Anyone else want to become a warrior for taste and standards in the town centre's retail side?

Swindon Centric Says ; It'll be excellent to see the market reopen and hope that there is greater diversity in the shops available, along with the quality of them.
