Chester indoor market hits one million

6 December 2018

Chester Indoor Market is expecting to welcome the one-millionth customer sometime next week. Footfall counters were installed at the end of last year and the digits have been flying ever since.

There will be a special prize of £250 Market vouchers waiting for the lucky millionth visitor. 

Councillor Brian Clarke, Cabinet Member Economic Development and Infrastructure said: “The Market has been transforming itself over the past year, it’s made the top ten shortlist for the best market in the country competition as voted by shoppers and is now preparing to celebrate its one millionth visit.

“This is a fantastic achievement and things will keep getting better when the market gets its new building at the centre of the Northgate development.” 

There will be updates on social media and inside the market to let shoppers know how close the big one million is.

Chester Market has extended opening hours during the festive period for unique gifts, crafts, foods and treats. Thursdays 8am to 8pm and Fridays 8am to 8pm (except 28 December). Sundays 11am to 4pm (9 December, 16 December and 23 December).
