You may have been aware of the decline occurring in markets over the years, both internally with the demise of market traders retiring from the trade to try out more secure options, and externally with reductions of the markets themselves. It appears markets are seemingly appealing less to start up’s as an option, and not providing enough stability for traders to persevere due to major factors such as the increase of larger supermarkets being built nearby, as well as online shopping being used more frequently today, which are what many traders have suggested as an explanation for the reduction of footfall in markets.
None of this is the market trader’s fault; the world has evolved with the internet and with that, markets have been slightly left behind as old marketing methods were all that were necessary in a world without eBay and large super markets on your doorstep. Traders simply never had the tools to compete or were not prepared for what was to come. Where’s My Market? is that tool, and with the markets and traders support, we will defy the decline in markets.
