News: Bazaar expansion for Rotherham's retail offer


Rotherham Markets is bringing a taste of the East to the town centre later this month with a very special Bazaar.

The Bazaar, which has already proved to be extremely successful in Bradford and Leeds, is set to arrive in Rotherham's Centenary Outdoor Covered Market every Thursday starting on June 27.

The bazaar will stock a diverse range of goods centred on the core products of fabrics and fashions along with jewellery, footwear, herbs and spices, sweets etc.

Following customer feedback from the 2012 Shopper Survey indicating that shoppers would like to see more markets in the Rotherham town centre, the Bazaar will run for a trial period of one year, with the option to extend this licence for a further two years if successful. It is proposed that 80% of the bazaar will comprise themed products, with 20% of more general products not having to fall with that category. Existing traders of the Rotherham Market will be able to apply to take a stall.

Hassan Ali, director of The Bazaar, said: "The Bazaar in Rotherham will be unique as the only place in South Yorkshire where shoppers will be able to find more than 100 stalls under one roof catering for Asian fashion, food and culture.

"It will stock an extensive range of Asian fabrics and fashion, jewellery, footwear, food and much, much more.

"The Bazaar has proved to be extremely popular in Bradford and Leeds and we have no doubt the shoppers in Rotherham will also enjoy what we have to offer."

Robin Lambert, general manager for Rotherham Markets, added: "We are excited about The Bazaar's arrival at Rotherham Market which we firmly believe will add significantly to the fantastic shopping experience that customers can enjoy when visiting Rotherham Town Centre.

"The Bazaar's unique blend of Asian, multi-cultural and traditional products will appeal to shoppers not just from Rotherham but from all over South Yorkshire."

The Bazaar at Rotherham Market launches with a fun packed celebration day that will include live music and dance with an Asian flavour as well fun activity for children including face painting.
