COMMENT - Market value

IT is good to see that despite High Street shops closing and the boom of out of town or internet shopping, Wigan’s markets are fighting back.

Determined not to get crushed by the big retailers, market traders believe they have something worth saving and are thinking of ways to bring people back into the markets.

And as WiganPlus’ sole aim is to support local trade, it comes as no surprise that it has come up with an innovate way to help the markets out.

So it is time all Wigan shoppers took stock of what the market has to offer and take advantage of any deals.
