Indoor market to reopen on Saturday

By on 19/08/2010 in News

 Birmingham's Bull Ring Indoor Market will reopen to shoppers on Saturday morning at 9am (21st Aug), after traders requested the site remained closed for a further 24 hours.

 The market closed on Tuesday morning to allow for a deep clean and pest treatment to take place after signs of cockroach activity were identified on site. 

While this work is now complete and the market has been given permission to reopen from Friday by environmental health officers, representatives of the 140 stall holders have approached the council to request an extra day to restock and prepare for trading to recommence.  

Head of Markets, Steve Grogan, said: “I'd like to thank shoppers for their patience and reassure them that thanks to this preventative action they can continue to have the utmost confidence in the quality, standard and safety of all the products bought within the Bull Ring Indoor Market.

“Stall holders and council officers have worked tirelessly to complete a thorough clean of all the stalls, public areas and service facilities in the building.

“We have also identified a number of changes to working practices within the market which will help further improve our pest control regime moving forward.”
