The outbreak of Coronavirus has been devesting to most independent & small companies with some unfortunately not able to get through the worst of it. As a company, Sketts have had to cancel many events & markets but have been lucky enough to come out the other side and reopen our retails and monthly food markets. Although this is great news, we have seen a massive decline in stall holders starting back after the 12-week closure. Therefore, we want to reach out to all stall holders, new, old & occasional!
As we all know, the high streets are currently struggling but this is where we can come in and help our local towns and help them thrive once again. We understand markets currently are not up to the usual takings and passing footfall which may make them unfeasible to attend, but it is all about seeing the bigger picture in the long run right now. And here is the bigger picture…
More traders, the bigger and better the market is, more people attend, the more sales for yourselves! Simple right?
So here is how you can help, attend and stick with it for a while. Please do not except to attend a market once and excel, it will take a time to build your clientele and news to get out about how someone bought this amazing product from the market, only for someone to come to the next market date and you not be there. We will do everything we can to help you promote your business by social media, websites and even press releases but we need time to do this, so please book a minimum week prior to the first date of the event you wish to book
Now you know how you can help; this is how we are going to help you at the individual locations.
