JDL Mini Markets

A “Young Traders” market will be staged in Nantwich Town Square where organisers hope to unearth the next Alan Sugar!

It’s the first market of its kind to be held in the town tomorrow (June 22) and is organised by Claire Lloyd, of JDL Mini Markets.

She hopes running a market stall will inspire budding young entrepreneurs to follow in the footsteps
of Lord Sugar and retail giant Marks & Spencer who both began with a single market stall.

Three winners who are in the 16-30 category will go on to take part in the NMTF regional final, in Wolverhampton which is on July 20.

Tomorrow’s young traders market is in the town square between 9am and 3pm, alongside the JDL regular family market.

There will be local products on offer and the winner of the Nantwich Young Trader of the Year Award will be judged by Mayor of Nantwich Cllr Stuart Bostock, along with the Town Crier and a local young trader & entrepreneur Holly Challinor from Nantwich Gin.

There will also be a Gaming Bus on the square, a Face-painter and more than 30 other small businesses.

Claire, of JDL Markets, said: “We invite the community of Nantwich to join them for a day of fun for all the family. There is something for absolutely everyone!”

  1. Great to see a new set of traders today, I hope it was a successful day both financially and experience perspective.Perhaps next time it could be worth considering appealing at the Artisan market, different market sector, demographics and another opportunity to learn

  2. Well do to the young market traders , they worked hard today and I hope they enjoyed their time, gained experience and made some money.

    In regard of Cheshire East and their commitments regarding Sugar and M&S it’s shows how out of touch they are with business. M&S founded in 1884 Sugar started trading in the 70s. Environment very different and ok both have adapted it baffles me why CE go back to days gone by. They have single handed started the destruction of Nantwich high street and have no idea how to help retailers .
