New Initiative for Penkridge Businesses…
Penkridge Markets has launched a new initiative to help local businesses in 2012. We are offering any business in the Parish of Penkridge the opportunity to take a free stall on the Market, for one day, to help promote your business and reach new customers.
Market Research has shown that the Market attracts up to 5,000 people every Market day, from around the Region, including people from as far as Telford, Stoke and Walsall. It is therefore bringing new customers into the area, who may not be aware of all the local businesses in Penkridge itself.
We are 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 and a gazebo.
For further information and to book a stall on the Market please call Matt Williams on 01785 714221. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
